Sunday Inspiration: Contemporary villa in Mallorca

International design studio CMV Architects have completed the Villa London project in 2004. The client, a well-known english writer, raised an extensive program to fulfill the needs of each of the members of the family.

The construction is set out on a plot of land near the cliffs - the infinite sights on the sea are the basic premise of the project. The residence is a set of independent entities: independent pavilions placed, one next to the other, along the axis of the cliff, each one of it keeping its own privacy and independence. The common areas work as connection spaces.

Finally, a writing pavilion is set out in a privileged area of the plot, allowing to cut off from the rest of the contemporary Spanish property and providing tranquility and easier concentration for the writer.
