masmallorca4

This house on Mallorca (Spain) is the perfect summer home. It is situated less than 50 meters away from the sea and there is no line between inside and outside. The pergolas on the terraces provide shade, while the thick walls keep the heat outside so it stays cool inside. Striking are the hot pink chairs which contrasts beautifully with the blue sky. The house is new but it was built with respect for tradition. The construction, although modern, comply with Mallorcan architectural guidelines and natural materials have been used that come from the area.
