Casa Bauzà is a one-story modern dream home set against the mountains in Pollença, Mallorca, Spain. Designed by Miquel Lacomba Architect of the same location, this sprawling home is centered around elegant simplicity.
The elevation is striking, a horizontal linear structure with an intersecting box resting on top. The facade of sandstone and wood creates a natural harmony between the structure and its verdant mountainside surroundings.
With a southern exposure, this dwelling harnesses abundant light throughout the day. Knowing this, the architect designed amazing sliding wooden screens across the home so occupants could customize their light and privacy.
The moment I laid eyes on the central staircase, I was in love. This massive structure of beautiful wood steals the spotlight. Open on one side creating a wall to the living area and featuring a brushed metal railing on the other, this staircase is itself an artwork. Such unfussy, yet dramatic design!
The kitchen is a dream. This u-shaped zone features wide upper windows shedding plentiful light and offering unique views of the mountain just beyond the home. This culinary space is shared with the dining room and eventually the living room. This boundariless layout is so ideal for gatherings, yet instills a degree of privacy when preparing meals. The secondary bedrooms are located just off of this area.
Furnishings are minimalist modern and inviting in calm, muted tones of grey and cream. In fact, the entire home is wrapped in this richly neutral palette which plays soothing backdrop to the warm medium woods throughout. With glass doors that fully retract, these living areas pour onto the outdoor patio, a lengthy space from which the carpet of grass and turquoise blue swimming pool can be admired. The white, double-bed lounges are to die for!
The gorgeous staircase links to the upstairs master suite and loft work space. The bathroom portrays captivating views of the environment and features a floating vanity with wood veneer, a freestanding soaking tub, and, of course, heated towel racks.
Casa Bauzà is a modern dream home built with solid and simple lines forming sophisticated flowing spaces.
