Modern dwelling frames alluring views of the Mallorca mountains

This modern dwelling was designed by , located in an idyllic setting overlooking the Tramuntana mountain range, in the town of Pollença, in Mallorca, Spain. A design of pure lines is the foundation of this 2,626 square foot (244 square meters) residence. The architect began the project with the idea of preserving the original topography. “The intervention sought to maintain the maximum of existing pines and oaks, avoiding large earth movements,” explains the architect.

This, along with the steep slope and its orientation, determined a staggered structure, which is accessed both from the deck, flush with the street, and an outside staircase. Contemporary architecture converses amicably with popular tradition by using elements such as dry stone walls. The backyard opens the living room to the south, greatly enhancing the quality of natural light.

Fact: This villa is also available as a luxury holiday rental, Villa Gotmar 138, with weekly rates starting at $3,690 USD, from .

Impeccable forms and an exquisite,  simple combination of materials were added: local stone, bushhammered and brushed in the floors and Iroco wood in the sliding blinds and the external platforms. A home automation installation consolidates comfort in every way.

The selection of furniture, decorative objects and works of art was made by Jaume Cortés, from the Mestre Paco studio. The artist opted for pieces with “soul”, that produce a welcoming effect, capable of tempering and singling the whole. In the selection, classic armchairs, new chairs, industrial details, handcrafted creations are mixed happily and spontaneously. These, thanks to their careful placement in a complementary set of balances, helps to lead the eye out towards the magnificent landscape beyond.

The orientation of this residence speaks of a respect for the environment, the Majorcan sierra, which maximizes its views through multiple, expansive windows.

Project Ideas:
– Modernize tradition. The architect devised large Iroco sliding shutters with a steel structure that reinterprets the characteristic blinds of Mallorcan slats.

– Brush strokes of color. With a neutral backdrop, punches of green and yellow frescoes intensifies the function of this villa as a vacation spot.
