Temperatures in Mallorca´s Mediterranean climate can top 35ºC in summer and drop to 0ºC in winter. Humidity levels can be as high as 90%. When we build a house, we draw on the wisdom of traditional culture, which has proven its effectiveness, even with a lack of resources. We update this know-how with a thorough market study of the new materials and industries available on the island and nearby.
The families we have created houses for place great importance on our choice of local natural materials (ceramic, stone, fabric and wood) because they make the house feel and smell like Mallorca. At the same time, we reduce CO2 emissions in production and transport.
When planning the interior layout, natural light is the protagonist in every room, and diagonal viewpoints are used to create warm, surprising spaces.
The final look of the outside of the house and its interior distribution are the result of a constructive dialogue with the client´s family about their dreams and needs, the location (orientation in terms of sun and dominant winds, views and morphology), municipal regulations, the agreed materials and the commitment to proximity and energy efficiency that XARXA takes on right from the beginning of every project.
