Its low, one-story profile aligns with the contours of the land with the roof virtually simulating the ground’s slope, with some parts of the building even sinking slightly into the hillside. This emphasis on landscape can be seen in creating the access to the property via the rear, so as not invade the privileged view that unfolds before the home.
The residence is designed around an access devised to work as a hinge connecting the three fundamental zones of the home: the sleeping areas, the living space and the kitchen area. In this way each zone can exist independently, increasing the level of comfort and liveability for its users, with patios inspired in typical Mallorcan architecture between each area. The humanity of the building can be seen in the importance of the common living area, with an imposing fireplace in the centre, separating the sitting room from dining area. This comfortable and unifying space, like the other zones, opens up onto the garden and swimming pool, not to mention views over the surrounding terrain.
A privileged vantage point over a unique area of Mallorca. The design breaks down the traditional barriers between outdoors and indoors. The use of noble and local materials confer a strong sense of belonging to the home. Outdoor dining is a pleasure with the home’s wise mix of sunlight and shade.
Discreet but select spaces enrich your moments. Your own oasis within an oasis. The spacious living room is presided over by an imposing fireplace built into a dividing wall. Huge sliding windows in the living room magnify the relationship with nature. With living spaces so connected to the natural surroundings your connection to the island will be absolute. Warm, natural tones in the materials are used to convey a unique sense of livability.
The house is located in a steep wooded hillside and its flat design is aimed at respecting the clearing in the woods where it is located. The sloping roof follows the lines of the hillside and covering both the living space and a large porch with a single gesture. On the ground floor, the access acts as a link between the three elements of the building: the main house, the children’s house and the service rooms.
