Client Private Clients Location Palma, Mallorca Spain Completed 2009
Sa Torre is a 15,000 square foot villa in the heart of Mallorca with spectacular sea views. Tara Bernerd & Partners was involved with the project from the very outset, providing the clients with essential creative direction: from selecting a prime plot of land through to development, construction and final delivery.
Knowing the island well, Bernerd was thoroughly versed in the vernacular building style and thus able to reference it elegantly. The use of local materials, including sandstone blocks from the nearby quarry in Santanyi, was key in creating a building that would settle into the environment. The outside and inside spaces were designed so that there is virtually no physical division between them, with substantial windows on all three sides of the main living area looking out onto the landscaped gardens, effectively bringing the outside in.
