PMA studio designed a minimalist holiday home, situated in the charming neighborhood of Portixol, in Palma de Mallorca.
PMA Studio is a leading architectural company based in Palma de Mallorca founded by awarded architect Pablo Madrid.
The project consists in the complete renovation of a traditional rowhouse, situated on a very narrow plot. Despite the slender shape of the property, the plan ensured that the interiors of the home still received plenty of light.
The studio created a distribution of the rooms that makes the most of natural light. The living room lies at the end of the plot, separated to the main patio by a large sliding glass. This large window allows occupants to expand their living space outdoors and flood this area with natural light.
The main bedroom is situated next to the entrance, while the children bedroom occupies the area where the floor plan narrows. The glass door opening onto the living area and a skylight were added to ensure again a better lighting.
A double sink entirely made of natural stone is located in the vestibule immediately next to the living room, where the plot expands. The two bathrooms are accessed through this area, which also gives access to a metallic custom-designed staircase, leading to the rooftop.
“Moving throughout the home, the expansion and contraction of the space defines the distribution and the different degrees of privacy.” managing director of the studio, Pablo Madrid states.
“As the clients were keen for the house to have a timeless aesthetic, natural materials and light colors were used throughout the space.” he continues.
Ceramics, limestone flooring and exposed wooden beams resonate with the Mallorca tradition, while black window frames and fixtures were chosen to connect the house with the Scandinavian roots of the clients.
Minimalist Nordic furniture pieces are mixed with local decor made of straw and natural fabric.
