Framing Perfect Views In Every Room: Solitary Casa 115 in Mallorca

Nestled in a gorgeous natural location, overlooking the bay of Sant Vicenç in Pollença, Spain, this contemporary residence developed by architect Miquel Lacomba seems almost surreal. The topography of the location came with architecture challenges, creatively met: “The problems posed by the land were solved by stone walls containing land which give a platform for the housing. The assumption of journey as architectural experience, almost cinematographic, generates a series of spaces, finding a number of areas that link the internal with the outside in an intense way, involving the rocky surroundings and panoramic views”, stated the architects.
From afar, the imposing residence seems to dominate the whole landscape. Cascading down the hill, Casa 115 frames mesmerizing views in each of its interiors. The open plan living and dining space is attached through a wooden deck with the swimming pool. A number of the sustainable features employed by the architects for this project were cross ventilation, passive solar power collection and a roof cover designed with a floating floor that stops overheating during summer.
