In this house in Menorca designed by the local architect Marina Senabre, two white volumes are provided with large openings that frame the view of the landscape “like works of art on the wall”. The house is intended to reflect both the architecture of the Mediterranean island and minimalist contemporary design.
Both structures are rendered and painted white. One is a long rectangular building with a flat gravel roof, while the other is a smaller gable unit covered in recycled terracotta tiles. There is no place for ornaments, the house appreciates the concept, proportions and simplicity. The doors are made of wooden boards that match the frames around the square windows, which are arranged to capture scenes of the landscape.
Living spaces, including the kitchen, dining room and living room, are housed in the larger volume. Inside, white walls are paired with light floors, wood accents, and simple furniture, including a rustic wooden coffee table and white couch. The kitchen walls are clad in a series of white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. A large white island and pendant lights stand out in the middle.
The interior of the house has been designed to reflect the same duality. It’s minimalist and warm thanks to continuous materials that cover horizontal and vertical surfaces and always in contact with traditional elements such as natural woodwork.
The smaller structure contains guest rooms, a sports room and a small indoor pool. This shallow pool of water has a miniature fountain adorned with rocks and sits in front of a large window with a view of the landscape. A larger pool also runs outside the two buildings. Concrete and gravel paths connect the structures and form a narrow terrace space. Take a look at this dreamy apartment and be inspired!
