Son Quint, a project by Gras Reynés Arquitectos and La Llave de Oro, is located in Palma de Mallorca very close to Son Vida, in a suburban setting surrounded by two of the best golf courses on the island. A residential complex of 16 thousand square metres that comprises 120 homes with 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms, surrounded by gardens, trees and communal areas with different swimming pools for adults and children.
The project is designed as a large "Mediterranean community" where the outdoor areas are as important as the indoor areas. The project also promotes the use of local materials, creating a strong and attractive identity.
All the homes have large outdoor areas, be it covered terraces, gardens on the ground floor or roof terraces on the penthouses.
The houses have been designed according to strict principles of sustainability: passive insulation systems and air conditioning with heat recovery, without renouncing traditional climate strategies such as cross-ventilation and solar shading and control by means of blinds, verandas and pergolas, which are present in all the homes.
The project has been developed with traditional materials but with an avant-garde and modern aesthetic. "Piedra seca" (dry stone), a technique with tradition in Majorcan architecture, has been used in the outdoor area to create the different terraces of the garden landscape and the boundaries of the property, while Santanyí stone, also typical of the island, has been used to clad the façades of the buildings, achieving strength and longevity in an environmentally sustainable project. The Santanyí stone is presented in 2 textures to give movement and plasticity to the façade.
Respect for the environment, modernity, sustainability and tradition in a project that we are sure will make all its inhabitants happy.
