Won in limited competition, we were commissioned to design two house types for a cliff and hill-top site overlooking the Mediterranean in the village of Valdemossa, Mallorca to the north of the capital Palma.
Our approach was to develop two distinct models which were driven by a response to their particular sites.
The hill top site is approached from below, with the potential to create a series of public spaces on the ridge which frame views to the sea and to Palma.
The cliff house is based on a traditional Mallorcan house concept – the courtyard – around which the public and private spaces are distributed.
