UXUS designed the ‘La Finca’ in Mallorca, Spain.
Description from the architects:
Located in one of the most picturesque villages in Mallorca, a rustic Spanish farm from the 13th century has been transformed into a private family holiday residence by UXUS. The intent for La Finca was to create an atmosphere that embodied the principles of “rustic luxury” updated to better fit an elegant and relaxed contemporary lifestyle.
White walls, terracotta tiling and exposed wood beams provide the romantic atmosphere of a Spanish country cottage interior that is then furnished with a mix of contemporary designs by Tom Dixon, Conran and Philippe Stark. According to the clients this eclectic balance between the rustic architecture and the clean, simple sophistication of the décor creates an “ambiance that offers the relaxed pleasures of country life with the sophistication that reflects our style of living”.
The rough and dramatic Mallorcan terrain that surrounds the property inspired La Finca’s landscape design. Its gardens incorporate an orchard, ancient olive trees, a guesthouse and a 15-meter pool. The swimming pool is the centerpiece of the garden and is designed to appear suspended over the property’s orange orchard. The overall objective of La Finca was to visually blend the existing house, the natural surroundings and the new construction into a harmonious whole.
