Situated in Marratxí, one of the towns on the island of Mallorca, this house has been designed for family life, and enjoying the Mediterranean climate.
The house is designed to allow each room to be bathed in natural light. The entire structure is centred around a courtyard, which is dominated by the swimming pool, and which also provides access to an additional area.
Despite its family-oriented feel, the house also offers its owners a personal space: the bedrooms have been designed for each family member so that, by going through a recessed porch, they have their own individual terrace. This is perfect for reading, sunbathing or, depending on the person’s preferences, connecting the indoors with the outside area.
The plot has some rainwater tanks, which are used to provide rainwater for irrigation throughout the year. This increases its sustainability, both in the short and long term.
Casainfinita Terranova Gris 75x75 porcelain has been used for all of the interior flooring. The Anti-slip version has also been used outside, allowing the design to be extended, giving the whole house the same contemporary style.

«The Viraje studio was born in 2009 from the conviction of its three founders that another way of building and practicing architecture is possible.
From a small studio in the outskirts of Mislata, a team of multidisciplinary professionals with an "alternate" vision was formed to provide answers and generate solutions tailored to the new era the world of architecture now finds itself in. The team is made up of architects, technical architects, designers and engineers with the aim of covering all the areas that make up the architectural practice in the most complete way possible.»
