Aubrey and his wife Muriel came to Spain from South Africa in the mid 1950s. He was a young idealistic ambitious architect. They first lived in Mijas where Aubrey was instrumental in bringing running water to what was then a desperately poor primitive village.
In the 1960s the Davids (by now they had a daughter) moved to Estepona where Aubrey built his first urbanisation right on the coast- Villas Andalus east of Estepona. This group of “cluster houses” became one of the first developments of this type of community-living in the world. It remains much sought after property to this day.
He then went on to develop the much larger more complicated urbanisation of Bahia Dorada a few kilometres west of Estepona, where some 300 cluster houses are set in manicured gardens with six community pools also right on the coast . This development went on to become a showpiece of community living on the Costa del Sol.
Beginning of 1970 the urbanisation Bahia de Casares was built again with his famous design.
