Es Pou. House in Formentera
The work is fragmented into three independent white volumes, reducing its scale and blending better into the landscape of wheat and oat fields.
From south to north, the first block harbors a porch, the second the dwelling’s shared spaces, and the third two bedrooms. Ceramic materials are present in the roof finishes, the Majorcan-style vaults, the lattices, the facade claddings. Some of the vertical surfaces include vitrified green tiles, not to mention the pressed terracotta tiles of the pavements.
Most of the furniture is custom-designed, as is a set of luminaires and special pieces, prepared artisanally with formworks in Marià Castelló’s studio. Chairs of Mediterranean craft tradition are mixed with contemporary elements, such as the table and small tables of the D12 series, which give the ensemble a material and chromatic counterpoint.
