At the recent event when we announced the beginning of the building of the modern sustainable homes of Be Lagom in Benahavis, we were delighted to see so many of our partners and real estate professionals, all eager to support this incredibly exciting and unique project.
Lagom, Swedish for ‘in moderation’, ‘just right’ or ‘not too much or too little’ beautifully sums up Be Lagom and we are very proud to launch Spain’s first ever-sustainable development of modern eco-friendly homes. Gracing the foothills near the mountain village of Benahavis, the Be Lagom villas are ‘just right’ for today’s discerning eco-friendly buyers too.
You don’t have to escape to a rustic finca
At Be Lagom the satisfaction of growing your own produce lies right at your door. Step outside and tend your own vegetable garden as you grow natural products with the assistance of expert farming consultants. Wander through the natural, fruit-tree-filled community gardens and swimming pools and you’ll feel at one with nature, yet metres from your modern, luxury home.
This gated development of 13 exclusive, sustainable houses for sale, is designed to the highest specifications by Gonzalez & Jacobson architects. The development makes the most of 5,000m2 of green spaces including gardens, orchards, pools and pergolas against the backdrop of panoramic views across the Mediterranean Sea.
From an elevated position just outside Benahavis, this feat of modern sustainable architecture combines privacy and exclusivity with authenticity of design. Building and decorative materials showcase the beauty of nature while providing an essential element of warmth to compliment the modern ecological building architecture.
But more than just a project, Be Lagom is a 21st century eco-living philosophy: Be Lagom encompasses everything that is ‘just right’, without being too ostentatious or restricted. What’s more, Be Lagom epitomises balance, sustainability and respect for our planet’s limited resources. Needless to say, the ecological architecture project has achieved the highest accolade in the world: a BREEAM Certificate for building sustainability.
