FINCA SA PEDRA – MALLORCA
Italian artist Fabrizio Plessi has made one of his dreams come true on the sunny island of Mallorca, Spain, in the form of his summer retreat, Finca Sa Pedra.
The renovated and converted house is made of large, rough, yellow sandstone blocks and is surrounded by cornfields and olive trees. The stone also informs the flair of the light-flooded rooms, complemented by white walls and a minimalist interior design concept.
At Sa Pedra nature is an integral part of the architecture and enters into dialog with modern design elements. In the former barn, exposed stones on the floor lead to the seating, in what is now a lounge area. Through the old wooden door in the bathroom one can see a modern Corian washbasin and in the kitchen the 7.2 m long stainless-steel ‘Convivium’ island, by Italian kitchen manufacturer Arclinea contrasts starkly with the rough sandstone outer walls. Here, nature and technology harmonize.
