His works resemble modern art, his style is unmistakable and his clientèle reads like a who’s who of international football stars: Spanish architect Joaquín Torres is regarded as the most renowned architect of world famous footballers such as Zinédine Zidane, Sami Khedira or Luis Figo.
Even the most expensive footballer in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo, is one of Torres’ customers. “I am not interested in football,” the architect admits in an interview with Spiegel Online. Some of the villas of the football stars are located in the famous celebrity village “La Finca” in Pozuelo de Alarcón, a suburb of Madrid. The villas are mostly single-storey and kept in bright colours; and although they look similar, each has an individual design. Torres’ style focuses on high-quality materials and a unique interplay of form and design. Currently, one of his most famous villas is up for sale at Engel & Völkers.
Nestled in Cascada de Camojan, Marbella´s most exclusive gated community, this luxurious jewel has been described as a work of contemporary art and creates a living experience unmatched anywhere in the region. Masterfully designed by Joaquín Torres, who has created homes for top Hollywood stars, the exemplary design of this masterpiece emphasizes an amazing continuity between indoor and outdoor living. The main level boasts spectacular reception rooms with impressive floor-to-ceiling glass and breathtaking sea views. Four master suits are situated on the upper floor, and a luxury spa and gym on the lower floor. In all rooms the clear volumes, straight lines and simple shapes harmoniously define the modern architecture. Other joys include an indoor pool, sauna, hammam, gym, tennis court guest apartment, lift and ten-car garage.
