Italian artist Fabrizio Plessi has made one of his dreams come true on the sunny Balearic Island of Mallorca, in the form of Finca Sa Pedra. The renovated and converted house made of large, rough, yellow sandstone blocks is surrounded by cornfields and olive trees. The stone also informs the flair of the light-flooded rooms, complemented by white walls and a minimalist interior design concept.
At Sa Pedra nature is an integral part of the architecture and enters into dialog with modern design elements. In the former barn exposed stones on the floor lead to the seating in what is now a lounge area. Through the old wooden door in the bathroom you can see a modern Corian washbasin and in the kitchen the stainless-steel “Convivium” by Italian kitchen manufacturer Arclinea contrasts starkly with the rough sandstone outer walls. Here, nature and technology harmonize.
The “Convivium” kitchen island is 7.2 meters long and fills the elongated kitchen area. The work surface is 20 centimeters high. The flat extractor hood “Hide” above the stove, likewise from Arclinea, is almost invisible. It is attached to a height-adjustable base and fitted with LED lights.
