The idea of ​​taking an old building and restoring it to a modern style expression can lead to many rashes.

The renowned architectural office Jarmund&Vigsnæs AS was commissioned to transform an old beef farm in Mallorca to an elongated and stylish country house.

– Since it was originally an ox farm, it was named Càn Bovet, “The little bull’s house”. And you enter the airy rooms inside the new, long-sized main building, you still have contact with nature and the horizon right outside, says architect Håkon Vigsnæs to bonytt. no.

Jarmund & VIgsnæs are known for a variety of spectacular projects. Among other things, a design hotel in the middle of Jotunheimen, a new mansion of recycled materials, and a crisp white Bærum housing as the trend magazine Wallpaper has shelled.

Strong Style Traditions

The country house in Mallorca was carried out on behalf of a design-driven Norwegians. The idea was, among other things, to create an undisturbed place where one can see a sheltered view over the landscape, which is essentially an agricultural area located in a snail valley in the middle of the island. Here it grows almond and olives on well-groomed grounds surrounded by pine trees, and it seems almost as the time has stood completely for hundreds of years in this valley.

The management of the Mallorca authorities in terms of construction quality and quality was at least as strong here as in Norway, says Vigsnæs.

First, the architects restored the little barn, so there were two new houses and the pool.

Style as votes

The architects also succeeded in implementing all the houses in the plant with the same roof angles and proportions as they found on the old beef mill. The formerly spartan-built plot has become almost a small village with narrow alleys and small spaces.

– One of the important things in the project was to create the large screened living terrace with a view, first over the pool and so further back on the horizon downhill with all the pines, the architects tell.

Challenge with heat and shadow

It is Scandinavians who live primarily here, and according to the architects it is important that they get adequate outdoor shade.

– They do not like the locals on the island who live a lot indoors.

This shadow challenge solved the architect by making a pergola outlet, a bamboo brake straight from the roof of the main house. It shields a total of 150 square meters of the area in front of the poolside.

– The heat, which sometimes gets high in this dry area, inspired us to create extra high, airy spaces, says Vigsnæs. This gives good penetration, and in addition, the window openings can be completely covered with bamboo spikes. Together, these two things provide fresh air throughout the night.

And in comparison to the island’s building traditions, one would not have air conditioning and too many high-tech installations.

The rooms will open in full width

With folding doors and bamboo shutters, the rooms are easily opened and closed to the full wall width.

All three houses have access to the pergola area. But there is no internal review between them.

Tailoring and Tradition

The architects did not add up to so many special details. They also prioritize clean surfaces and butt in butt closures between the building elements. Most of the constructions are special seams, mostly made by a skilled local carpenter.

– He is a representative of Mallorcas high craftsman standard. It is actually not so easy to find professionals with equivalent expertise in Norway, notes Vigsnæs.
