Mallorca, Spain – Status: Completed 2008 – Area: 8,600 ft², 800 m²
One of the worlds most published houses in 2012/2013, – an endless list through dozens of countries from „Wallpaper“ to „Le Figaro“ to „Elle“ etc…, – also featured on various TV channels like HGTV etc.
Located approximately 15 minutes outside of Palma de Mallorca in an exclusive community called Son Vida, the eponymously named Casa is an example of design poetry in motion. The completion of this remarkable home marks the arrival of third millennia architecture on the island of Mallorca. The task at hand was straightforward: take a very un-extraordinary existing Mediterranean villa constructed in the 60s and transform it into something extraordinary. The 800 m2 luxury villa transgresses the constraints of site and context, redefining luxury architecture on the island.
