Bright design

The design – led by OBMI with interiors by MKV Design and landscaping by RSR Studio – celebrates and encourages the togetherness of friends and family amidst light, airy interiors. Consisting of clean lines and simple silhouettes, the architecture incorporates brick wall patterns and masonry that reference local materials and building traditions.

Modern and fluid interior designs find cues in the resort’s architecture and honor the sense of retreat into the forested slopes of the Sierra de las Nieves. Large windows offer expansive views and an open feeling, while social areas with orange trees and water features encourage social gatherings in a courtyard-style setting that reflects both Angsana’s essence of cherishing every moment and the Andalucian destination.
