Casa Amapolas is a new residential project for a private client located a short distance from Fornalutx in the North West region of Mallorca.
The existing house is a split level bungalow with a subterranean bedroom with incredible views over the Tramuntana mountain range. The house was completely stripped of its interior and a new plan was drawn up to make better use of the space.
Locally sourced materials and craftsmen were employed to give the house a vernacular, rustic feel. Local marble sinks are used alongside matt black taps and mixers. The existing woodwork was stripped and sandblasted to achieve a limewashed textured effect which was carried through to the new kitchen and bedroom cupboards.
New steel framed windows and doors were made on the island and add to the agricultural and industrial aesthetic of the building. The project is currently on site and due for completion in November 2016.
