The project is located at the urban complex “La Font” in Pollença at the base of an impressive limestone mountain. The project was commissioned by the Bauzà family, thanks to whom I have been able to explore further possibilities on my work field, looking for naked and simple lines, seeking wider perspectives.

The house is located at the back of the plot, facing south, maintaining the existing forest of pine and oak trees, framing the mountain’s profile. The exterior of the housing, made of sandstone, uniformly covers facades, sloping roofs and roadways so that it can be observed as a single piece.

The distribution is developed mainly on one level, except the first floor. One sole space integrates kitchen, dining room and living area. Specific furniture and a central wooden staircase being the connection, define the use of these areas. Along this line we find the porch, where the sliding blinds work as filters for the light and also maintains intimacy. The wooden staircase leads to the master bedroom and also to the two-floor open studio.
