Keeping true to the island and staying ecologically friendly, German architect Thomas Wegner undertook this house; considered an expert in recovering the essence of the buildings on the island of Mallorca, Thomas Wegner's architectural stamp is unmistakable.
The new materials in colors of polished beige duplicating the island's golden sand beach is broken only by white walls that somehow enhance clarity. Similarly, the roofs, which retain the original wooden beams have been restored and also painted white. The effect is reinforced by the windows placement allowing the sunlight to stream in and the greenery from outside to come inside.
The energy flow from the location of the large windows is significant - the architectural elements such as set stone in niches, arches and stairs are of French farmhouse feel and also island cabana. Each piece of furniture is also critical to the overall effectiveness.
Full of character, the kitchen has a simple concrete floor polished to a beautiful tone and the table is from an old Mallorcan farm. The chairs are from Fermob, famous for producing Paris bistro chairs. Difficult to see from these photographs, the window is perfectly planed to bring the outside in, and under the window, provision is made for a useful storage area. The kitchen countertop is green granite that coordinates beautifully with the oak wood cabinets. The ceiling conserves the original wood beams, recovered and painted to gain luminosity.
The architect took great pains to open up the entire house to the bay by the stairs that parallel the house. On the washed pine console table is an old mirror of IP Design and above the console is a work of Julian Meunie. Resting against the wall is an acrylic artwork by Iris Stewen.
Asymetry: the tall acrylic painting opposite the tall window; greenery on tables slightly different, but the flow is taller toward the taller acrylic painting; one armchair has a dark silk throw, the other armchair, a light throw.
