This vacation house for a German art dealer is set in an almond grove on the island of Mallorca, with views of sea and mountains.

The office’s first full architectural project, the design explores ways of achieving a quality of proportion in outside space
more usually associated with interiors. The composition of the atrium is emphatically vertical, the exaggerated height of the walls dramatised by the narrowness of the slot opening. As the design brings together certain conventions of interior and exterior spaces, so it plays with the opposition of raw nature and the formality of architecture, pigments from the soil being used to tint the render.
