Step inside the beach house in Puerto Pollença and you will instantly feel the calming energy of a lateral living space nestled between the beach and the Serra de Tramuntana mountains. The Beach House is a holiday home available for rental that is designed for wellness, relaxation and tranquil days away from the hustle and bustle of the summer crowds.
Samantha Knight, Paul Robinson and NB Architects in Palma interpreted the brief for an Ibiza style villa, carefully planning its space to maintain a carefree flow. Rustic materials were sourced from Mallorca with interesting textures being implemented to layer an otherwise simple canvas. Originally from London, Samantha was very careful with her sourcebook and chose to work with local artisans to design the original key furnishings.
The result is a space that transitions effortlessly from day to evening entertaining. The pergola features an oversized bespoke table crafted from recycled Obra wood by Conalma Design on the island as well as hand-crafted wicker chairs sourced from an independent retailer in Palma. A touch of charm has been added with a hat rack made from aged olive wood and which now hangs beach towels, rattan baskets and sun hats perfectly.
Paul Robinson and his team carefully implemented contemporary lighting into the bamboo ceilings to contrast against the rustic furnishings and to ensure ambient lighting for long summer evenings could be experienced in the home.
The house is virtually unrecognisable now from its past, when it was an abandoned holiday home. As soon as you step out of your car and on to the ethereal white driveway, catching sight of the garden oasis and pergola setting, you know you are somewhere special.
