New panoramas on Mallorca are quite so broad and breathtaking as those over the Bay of Pollença. So it’s no wonder this region of the island has become one of the most sought after when it comes to holiday homes, and especially those with an enviably elevated position from which to enjoy these glorious sweeping vistas.
With its prestigious reputation for both new-builds and renovations, it is also no surprise that Pollença-based LF91 were approached to design this hillside villa. The client’s request was for an unpretentious holiday home, simple, functional and easily maintained, and one that also respected the natural surroundings.
The slope of the plot meant that different levels had to be constructed to accommodate the terraces, gardens and infinity-edge swimming pool. The building was also obviously positioned in such a way for its bold geometry to take full advantage of the glorious bay views.
For the interiors, natural Zarci grey stone was used for the floors, setting a cool and sophisticated tone in which stylishly understated furnishings by design brands such as Luce de Lema, Andreu World and Ortelia by Lema harmonise beautifully.
Decorative lighting ranges from the retro-influenced DCW standing lamps to the chicly modern Foscarini hanging shades. These, together with an assortment of scatter pillows, wispy hanging drapery and a mix of patterned rugs, have a deliberate lack of uniformity, creating a warmly eclectic feel throughout.
“A main objective was also to create spaces that were connected to each other, with special emphasis on the interior–exterior connection,” explains designer Olivia Reina.
And the cosy living room does indeed segue effortlessly into the outside space, where seating by luxury brand Tribù and Valencian designers Expormim create the perfect spot where your eye is drawn over the bay and to the sunset slipping over the sierra silhouette opposite. Even with wonderful design like this, such stunning views will always steal the show.
