BRIGHT creates homes that improve quality of life through pure design – community areas with a wonderful feeling of space, home offices where isolation is not a factor, kitchens that inspire a healthier lifestyle and bedroom suites designed for easy sleep. In the BRIGHT world, design always comes first.
BRIGHT was set up shortly after its CEO, Michael Rodziewicz, met his counterpart in UDesign, Jason Harris, asking for help in turning his Marbella house into a home. Michael had searched, unsuccessfully, for a cool, contemporary villa that looked as good inside as out, and ended up buying in the traditional Andalusian style. So far, so good...well, good enough. That is, until he purchased a truckload of furniture that should have fitted in, both physically and aesthetically, but didn't. Creative Director Jason did his thing, and the problem was solved. The BRIGHT partnership was born.
UDesign is pure design. A team of 3D specialists works on each project, ensuring that furniture, fittings and lighting – the three principal elements that are often no more than an afterthought – are contextualised from the start. UDesign begins the design process from the inside, designing homes based on how people like to live. As Jason says: "design is a concept, not a set of drawings. The true beauty of a design is as much in how it works and feels as in how it looks. Design is holistic, and I use the word in its strict sense: it involves feelings of well-being as well as pure aesthetics."
The combination of a design studio and a developer working as one brings together both the creative and technical aspect of innovative architectural design to produce exceptional results.
As the first developer to bring design-led projects to an area like the Costa del Sol, BRIGHT is a trail blazer. Michael puts it this way: "a great home should improve your quality of life, probably more than any other single factor. Together, we're making this a reality".
BRIGHT’s first project in Marbella was Villa Alcuzcuz, a 1,323 square-metre award-winning home, completely sustainable – Marbella's first avant-garde luxury house designed and built under Passive House Regulations and Standards. Architecture awards: “Best in Spain” and “Best in Europe” from the International Property Awards in 2019. The villa was sold in February 2021.
BRIGHT is currently developing Vista Lago Residences, a luxury development of 18 individually designed sustainable villas, located fifteen minutes from Puerto Banús on one of the highest plots of Real de La Quinta, overlooking Marbella. Architecture awards: “Best in Spain”,“Best in Europe” and the top prize of “Best International Residential Development” from the International Property Awards in 2021.
