Contemporary Villa London, Mallorca
International design studio CMV Architects have completed the Villa London project. Completed in 2004, this contemporary property can be found in Llucmajor, Mallorca, Balearic Islands.
According to the architects: “The contemporary Spanish house is located in the Sa Torre housing development, in a plot of land next to a cliff. The client, a well-known English writer, raises an extensive programme to fulfill needs of every member of the family. The infinite sights on the sea will be the basic premise of the project. The necessity to open the house to the landscape, taking advantage of the local characteristics, entails the disintegration of the volumes, fleeing from the massification.
“The construction is set out as a set of independent entities: independent pavilions placed, one next to the other, along the axis of the cliff, each one of it keeping its own privacy and independence. The common areas work as connection spaces. Finally, a writing pavilion is set out in a privileged area of the plot, allowing to cut off from the rest of the contemporary Spanish property and providing tranquility and easier concentration for the writer.”
