This gorgeous farmhouse in Mallorca, Spain, spotted on Nuevo Estilo, located in a semi-rural enclave, has grown and transformed with its many different owners. The current owners, a family with four children, decided to reform this holiday home, enlarging it to suit their needs of entertaining large groups of family and friends who regularly visit.
Dispersed over two floors, there are six bedrooms, four bathrooms, living room, kitchen and an attractive exterior. Besides a new layout, recent reforms have introduced high technical improvements designed to revalue the property. Equipment and delivery systems of the house were changed to make them more efficient and sustainable and the kitchen and bathrooms were renovated to become highly functional spaces. Special care was taken in the construction to not lose the original essence.
The woodwork of doors, windows, blinds and cabinets, respects the traditional Mallorcan style, which can still be seen in the living room and kitchen, with the primitive thick walls. As for materials, local stone was chosen for floors, countertops and kitchen fronts, and coating of the bathrooms. Interior design studio Mestre Paco was commissioned for the interior decoration, creating a fresh contemporary style infused with light colors, natural fabrics and wood, enhancing the cozy and comfortable atmosphere.
Surrounded by a mountainous landscape in Mallorca, Spain, this contemporary home, spotted on Nuevo Estilo, has been designed by architect, Miguel Ángel Lacomba in conjunction with LF91 as project manager. The exceptional location, facing the valley that surrounds the cala Sant Vicenç, required the architects to consider the environment when constructing the home, looking for views at all times as a reference.
The architect explains, “interior spaces are related abroad strongly involving the rocky environment and the spacious panoramic.” In this sense floor to ceiling glass walls replace the walls on the facade towards the sea and in addition, fill the rooms with light, further enhancing the dominance of white. Public spaces were designed to be open to create light and spaciousness.
In these interiors of clean lines and current concepts, decoration plays a fundamental role to clarify and bring warmth, without betraying the philosophy of construction. Colorful carpets with ethnic or natural fibers, ultra-comfortable sofas, wooden tables and textured fabrics, are mixed with classic design pieces, vintage pieces and accessories. As a touch of stellar effect, the views and the Mediterranean light, ever-present in every environment, dominates all the attention.

This charming 120 year old Majorcan retreat spotted on Nuevo Estilo is surrounded by a quiet garden with fruit trees that surrounds the pool in the small village of Selva. The owners restored the old 3,229 square foot (300 square meters) farm house and transformed it into spacious interiors with plenty of natural light and comfortable environments. The objective was to create a comfortable home ideal for rest. Interior walls and doors were eliminated to expand the spaces and windows were added to connect with outdoors.
Elements were preserved to show the original character of the structure such as wooden beams and stone walls, each room has a view wall to remember the origin of the house. The environment was decorated by the owner with a mix of traditional and modernity for a fresh and natural result. On the ground floor there is a fully equipped kitchen, library with reading area, living room and three spacious bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms, the master having direct access to the garden. The second floor has a spacious fourth bedroom with amazing views of the surrounding mountains.
The sound of water and the aromas emanating from the garden are combined to create a peaceful environment on this sprawling rustic country estate designed by architect Antoni Esteva in Mallorca, Spain. Located on the edge of the house is a small courtyard, comprising of a profuse garden which enhances the feeling of spaciousness, luminosity and sobriety that breathes throughout the interior. The unity of materials and Balearic native architecture is a constant throughout the home, which is divided into three levels due to the slope of the ground. The exterior facade is comprised of masonry, limestone and lime mortar. The interior spaces are characterized by a merger of modern and rural simplicity.
In line with Mediterranean architecture, the walls and ceilings appear bleached while the north pine wood ceiling beams stand out. The soft and porous stone flooring, of intense shades of ochre, provides contrast to the white walls, but, above all, warmth, so much that, according to Antoni Esteva, “allows walking barefoot in any time of the year.” There are few doors in the home, which connects the living environments into a spacious and airy floor plan.
Located in the same space, the hallway, dining room, living room and kitchen are an example of this visual continuity, which is enhanced by the use of the same scale in the upholstery and the horizontal row of planks of wood that decorates the ceiling in these four rooms. There are, however small sections of steps, or half walls which allows each space to retain its own autonomy. This same philosophy is repeated in the area where there are private units, which, located at a higher level, have balconies from where there are not only the landscape, but also the attractive verandas and the pool area.

This beautiful vacation refuge was spotted on Nuevo Estilo and is located near Artà, a small town with history, charm and beautiful beaches in a perimeter of only five kilometers, on the Spanish Balearic island of Majorca. The owners commissioned architecture studio Zirón Architects to implement traditional old Majorcan construction to build the home. The owner’s objective was to create a haven of retreat and rest from their intense working life. The home was designed with amplitude of spaces and the use of natural materials to create a cozy living environment.
It’s quiet and open interior transported the ancient essence to a modern vision of space, in tune with the nature that surrounds. In contrast to a ‘Centennial’ appearance, the interiors are open and airy, reflecting modernity and comfort. The interiors feature stone, recovered Catalan beams, windows, doors and floors made with old treated wood and continuous polished concrete flooring. The walls were painted in shades of sand to create warmth and reflect the light in the rooms that are always in connection with the garden. The decoration is simple and austere, exuding quietude and combines braided fiber, wooden furniture and tapestries of white cotton in a culmination of naturalness and relaxation.
The creation of this sensational Mallorcan house, an island off of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea, is by architect Miguel Ángel Lacomba. The house is oriented to the south, with the mountains behind and overlooking the swimming pool and Mediterranean garden, the house sits, crowned by a cubic volume in the center, which is the master bedroom. One of the characteristic features of the façade of the home is based on two-colors: white – resounding and ubiquitous – and grey, accompanied by warm wood for the shutters.
This core trio is pronounced in the external façade, the cubic forms of the building have been coated with sandstone, covering everything like a white and luminous skin. Majorcan wood shutters turn into sliding panels that slide to protect from the sun and allows for privacy. The gray hues are demonstrated in the aluminum frames wrapped around the large windows. The interior decoration is by designer Mestre Paco, who has given a clean aesthetic, following the same trend and respecting that minimal essence tricolor. The interiors are filled with natural light and filtered light, depending on whether the glass doors or shutters are open or closed. What do you think of this fabulous home, does it inspire you? Via
This beautiful rural home, spotted on Nuevo Estilo, is situated in Algaida, in the heart of Mallorca, Spain has passed through many uses since it was built in the 1700’s. It was once an inn, then a winery, an oil mill, and then it was abandoned and forgotten. Architect Durval Dias Junior discovered this historical ruin and decided to transform it into a breathtaking refuge. This typical rural construction fascinated the architect by the endless possibilities that it offered. As stated by the architect, “it retained in good condition many ancient elements that gave a clear identity.” It was his respect for these elements, and his desire to maintain them, that defined the rehabilitation. He preserved the original stone, certain walls, the arches of the openings, the original staircase, as well as additional recovered materials that remain part of the house, but in other uses. The old wooden beams were re-purposed to shape the interior doors.
When it came to the interior decoration, the architect sought to create an ambiance of elegant architectural austerity. With the addition of few ornamental elements and clearly defined spaces that pays a warm tribute to the sober Majorcan town houses. The furniture entwines newer pieces with simple lines mixed with a vintage industrial touch, which demonstrates the passage of time, but with comfort in mind. The home is infused with a calm palette of natural colors of black and white and essential materials of wood, stone and iron, mixed with ancestral resources such as polished concrete that unifies all the spaces, while concealing the underfloor heating system. Another example of how tradition and modernity can go hand in hand in perfect harmony.
