Sa coma de ses roques
2017 – 2021
It is a reform of an existing house in ruins, which had already been built with sandstone walls sourced from a local sandstone quarry.
The house is located on the outskirts of Porreras, a town located in the center-south of the Island of Mallorca, on a plot with a certain slope and views towards the town surrounded by the northern part of an oak grove and a cultivated field where traditionally they grow apricots.
The house was located on hard rock terrain. This stone has been used to maintain the terraces of land that in the past were used to grow peaches and almond trees typical of the area.
Inhabit the Stone wall
The main idea of continuing the retaining walls called “marges” of dry stone giving a continuous envelope in the lower part of the house to the pool forming terraces that are divided in transversal by a staircase that accesses the lower part of the garden and that we separates the house and the pool.
The facade is done by "marés" sandstone, unique material from a quarry near the village of Porreres.
Raw materials are used to build the interior of the house
Topographically there is also a need for the regulations on making the house on one floor to be hidden from the street, so the house also wants to sit on the slope and adapt to it.
