Linear concrete volumes build this sleek and luxurious 1,260 square metre home design, located in Son Vida, Palma, Spain. Created by Osvaldo Luppi Architects, the deluxe villa features extensive terraces, which include a large outdoor swimming pool to enjoy under the Mediterranean sun. Outdoor living areas make the most of long days and warm nights on the south-facing multi-level terraces, which are stepped to follow the topography of the hillside. Walls of glass retract to adjoin the exterior with interior volumes, where clean white & grey walls and golden wood tone meld in marvellous spaces. Be sure to check out the walkthrough video of this spectacular Mediterranean villa at the end of the tour.
The modern facade slices crisply into the rolling hillside of this sought after residential area, which is referred to locally as the ‘Beverly HIlls of Mallorca’.
In this elevated position, Villa Marola boasts fabulous views over the capital city of Palma and the surrounding countryside.
The luxury house exterior comes alive at night, issuing great lengths of light from its glass fronted volume.
Inside the luxurious property, clean white & pale grey walls colour a fresh feel, whilst golden wood tone adds a mellow warmth.
The living room is an airy space with a simple yet stylish composition of modern lounge furniture. An L-shaped sofa gently hugs the perimeter of a rounded rectangle coffee table, opposite a couple of swivel armchairs. A modern fireplace and log store cuts darkly into the back wall, setting a stripe of contrast against the matt white paintwork.
At night, the surrounding hills twinkle magically with the lights of the capital city. Inside, recessed spotlights distribute an even glow, whilst perimeter LEDs highlight the texture of a wood slatted TV feature wall.
Built-in units float a few inches above the floor tile to maintain the perception of open space in the clean layout. A planter is bedded into the top to create a run of greenery through the dining room, all the way to the fireplace in the lounge.
Another bed of plants is cut right into the floor of the hallway, which creates a sense connection with the green hillside location. Textured concrete ripples a cool backdrop, whilst wood wall cladding offers a counteracting smooth finish and warmth.
Outdoor chaise lounge chairs pull up poolside, introducing a pastel pink accent that playfully contrasts with the cool blue pool.
The rectangular pool shimmers across the front of the interior lounge and dining space, whilst the outdoor lounge aligns with the kitchen.
A modern outdoor sofa is positioned for comfortably taking in the views.
A huge white marble and wood grain kitchen island faces toward the wide pool terrace and the sweeping panorama. Unique kitchen pendant lights fall at varying heights to create a sculptural installation of lustrous copper.
The luxurious white marble and wooden finishes continue across the back wall of the kitchen, where a deeply recessed planter is built into the backsplash to simulate a mini landscape view in the windowless wall.
A sculptural staircase design connects all three levels of the villa, rising from the access area at the base of the property, through the main living level and up to the private bedrooms.
Solid wood balustrades carve out a rise of asymmetrical geometry.
Wood slatted feature walls bring texture to the stairwell, which is exaggerated under concealed LED ribbons.
Upstairs, a master suite and three bedrooms each have their own ensuite bathroom and balcony area. The door to the ensuite and closets are camouflaged within a wall of smooth wood panelling in the master. A glass balustrade allows the majestic hillside views to be enjoyed from an outdoor chair, from the cushioned end of bed bench, or when enjoying breakfast in bed.
A generously sized double sink bathroom vanity sweeps along one whole wall of the large master bathroom.
A built-in bathtub fills the adjacent wall, positioned perfectly for gazing out at the vista.
Floor vases fashion a pretty moment in a blank hallway.
The property also has an indoor pool down on the access level.
The long driveway that leads up to the home enters the shade of a carport before turning into the garage.
A skylight fills the deep cover with natural light.
Plant beds grow a welcoming entryway.
The restricted palette of materials enhances continuity between interior and exterior areas.
Public floor plan with social living areas, including the main sun terrace, swimming pool, and the outdoor living room. We can also see the long and dramatic driveway approach to the property here. A tall outdoor staircase provides a pedestrian entrance.
On the access floor plan, we can see where the car parking garage is bedded beneath the main living room, and where the indoor swimming pool is situated beneath the sun deck.
The private floor plan illustrates the layout of the master bedroom suite with large ensuite bathroom and private terrace. We can also observe the even distribution of space between the remaining three bedrooms, ensuite bathrooms, and terraces.
