House in Mallorca by Alvaro Siza


Alvaro Siza projected a fragmented composition volume, inspired by the rock surrounding landscape, that extends over the hill to the sea.

*UPDATED* Now with plans of the house and an elevation.

The volume consists of three large blocks, which are subdivided into several smaller pieces. The connection between the separate volumes is made by crossing gap between them.

The East Block contains the main entrance, the master bedroom, the guest room and a ladder. The West Block, that serves as the central connecting point, has three rooms on the top floor and a lounge/living room adjacent to the courtyard. The North Block serves as “home to home” and contains three rooms.
