Taylor Wimpey España celebrates Year of Green Action with superb Botanic development

Saving the environment is no longer something that we can leave to future generations and, thanks to the work of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Sir David Attenborough, awareness of this has never been greater. The IPCC warned in late 2018 that we have just 12 years to keep global warming to a maximum of 1.5°C, while Sir David’s Blue Planet II has done wonders for raising awareness of plastic pollution issues.

2019 is Year of Green Action, with the UK government encouraging environmental responsibility through the #iwill hashtag. While individuals can do much by reducing their use of plastics, water and energy, large companies are also in a powerful position to support the cause. Nor is it just a UK issue. Over in Spain, for example, leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has been actively working to build more sustainable homes for some years.

“By working together to protect the environment, we still have time to effect change. As a responsible and environmentally aware company, Taylor Wimpey España has been doing just that. Almost all of our new developments have energy certification B thanks to the use of energy-saving components such as special windows and solar panels. We’re building homes for today’s holidaymakers at the same time as working to make a better future for their children and grandchildren.”

Located at La Reserva de Alcuzcuz, Benahavis (Malaga), Botanic is a leading example of this green ethos in action. Sustainability, ecology and bioclimatic architecture are at the heart of the development, which consists of 92 bright, spacious three-bedroom apartments. In addition to environmentally sound construction elements (including solar panels, high quality thermal insulation and sound-proofing), the development features vertical gardens and green corridors that link each of the phases. This envelops the homes in a unique natural environment that respects the immense variety of local species and indigenous trees.

At the same time, the properties themselves have been designed to maximise the natural light and spectacular views. The buildings use the varying height of the ground to optimise views across the mountainous landscape to the sea, while the incredibly generous terraces all face south to benefit from the abundant Spanish sunshine. At the top of the four-storey buildings, the impressive penthouses boast spectacular solariums. Internally, the rooms exceed market standards in terms of their space, while open plan design allows a beautiful flow between the kitchen, living room and terrace areas.

“Our aim with Botanic was to show how contemporary homes can offer a superb lifestyle experience while also respecting the environment. The result is a development that creates a real sense of harmony with nature. Our buyers love Botanic’s serenity – it’s the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of modern life, as well as showcasing how housebuilders can work with the natural environment to create homes that are both environmentally aware and highly desirable.”
