Interior design project at Son Verí, Mallorca for a house with privileged views by interiorism studio Jorge Bibiloni Studio.
This family home is situated in the Son Vida area in Mallorca. The residential area is very close to the centre of town and is well know for it´s tranquility and is surrounded by various golf courses.
The home takes up 450m2 of the 2000m2 plot and is divided between two floors. The bedrooms are on the ground floor and the communal living areas are on the top, this architecture makes it unusual compared to other projects in the area. In this way the swimming pool area is elevated so that stunning views can be enjoyed.
The interior design reveals that every detail has been carefully chosen and many pieces have been made to measure for this home.
The access to the interior is a double story space on the ground floor with plenty of nautral light. Along the corridor, and also bathed in natural light are the four bedrooms, with the master bedroom at the end.
All the flooring of the interior of the home is of honed travertine stone, changing to natural oak in the bedrooms.
The master bedroom has an elongated shape with the access in the middle of this space, entering through a large oak pivoting door is the dressing room with the bathroom and bedroom on either side.
The design of the bathroom includes an interior garden illuminated by natural daylight and the large mirror over the sink enlarges the space and reflects light from the garden. Past the opaque glass is the shower and the separate toilet.
The staircase leading to the second floor is made of a metal structure covered in oak with a one centimetre iron railing on one side. Underneath, the staircase is also covered in oak as well as the walls on either side.
The second floor offers eleven meters of space which can be opened to the exterior, the aluminium framed windows can be concealed within the panels of iroko wood.
The staircase reaches the centre of this space, on one side is the open kitchen and dining area and on the other is the living room. The sides of the staircase have been made to measure and have the purpose of both containing the stairs and of being used as a railing.
The open kitchen offers views to the swimming pool, and the central island contains the sink and the glass-ceramic cooktop. These elements are concealed by a travertine parapet which gives a sculptural aspect to the kitchen, and is in keeping with the uniform design applied to every element within this home.
On one side of the kitchen is the laundry room, the pantry and the bathroom, all behind oak paneled walls in order to give a light and uniform appearance, where the paneling stops both the flooring and the ceiling are also oak.
Once outside, the flooring of travertine stone changes to a wood platform coinciding with end of the eaves of the house, and beyond this platform on the same level is the swimming pool tiled in dark green mosaics.
The swimming pool has a shallow area of four meters and is very practical for children, making the pool a total of fourteen meters long.
The impressive large terrace around the swimming pool is due to having located the bedrooms on the ground floor.
The merging of the interior and exterior spaces once the eleven meters of windows are opened is wonderful, and today this is a key requirement for this type of homes.
Architecture and interior design complement each other perfectly creating a perfect atmosphere for the daily life of a family.
