A NEWLY BUILT RUSTIC MEDITERRANEAN STYLE HOUSE THAT LOOKS LIKE IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE

The strict regulations for rustic land in Mallorca was the biggest challenge that Jaime Salvá Arquitectura & Interiorismo had to face, who had to build a rural house that would combine the contemporary tastes of its owners with the Mediterranean style of the area.

Design a modern rustic house, but perfectly integrated into the landscape, as dictated by the rustic land law of Mallorca. That was the challenge that Jaime Salvá Architecture & Interior Design had to face: “The regulations, among other restrictions, highlight that 80% of the roofs have to be sloping, made of Arabic tiles; that the openings in the facade must have a vertical proportion, and those ocher tones must be used in the construction”, reviews the professional.


At the same time, thanks to decisions such as the use of micro-cement in the coating of the bathtub or in the vertical walls, as well as the creation of large windows that connect the interior and the exterior, the house is framed in the most absolute present.

Thus, making clever use of the mix between the traditional and the new, the studio has been able to design a single-story dwelling that is both contemporary and vernacular, simple and sophisticated. "All the rooms are placed facing the best views and orientation, but not forgetting the connection with the rear, thus achieving cross-ventilation, as well as views to all points of the plot", explains Salvá.

Mormaiquel House, which is what the project is called, is located in Biniagual, a small town of Arab origin with about 15 houses and 20 inhabitants in the interior of the island, on a rustic plot of 35,000 square meters surrounded by vineyards, with views to the mountain.

“Conceptualmente, se trata de una secuencia de muros paralelos de piedra que van dividiendo las diferentes estancias. Y se desarrolla con un estilo arquitectónico mediterráneo, utilizando materiales locales, como la piedra de mampostería utilizada en los muros, usada en la misma parcela, que tiene presencia tanto en el interior como en el exterior de la vivienda”, recuerda Salvá.

“Conceptually, it is a sequence of parallel stone walls that divide the different rooms. And it is developed with a Mediterranean architectural style, using local materials, such as the masonry stone used in the walls, used on the same plot, which has a presence both inside and outside the house”, recalls Salvá.

Its inhabitants, a local couple who share the house with numerous animals, were in charge of choosing the furniture in neutral tones, with a large presence of textiles, vegetable fibers and bare wood, in a relaxed style that goes perfectly with the new construction.
