Cap Adriano in ELLE Decor, the popular interior design magazine.


ELLE DECOR, the international magazine inspired by interior design and home decoration, has dedicated a new publication to the interior design carried out in Villa 1 of the CAP ADRIANO residential complex.

The Terraza Balear team, in collaboration with the italian furniture firm "Minotti", has been responsible for the interior design of this project, located in Port Adriano and designed by our team of architects from Mallorca, GRAS Reynés Arquitectos.

The villas echo the traditional Mallorcan Mediterranean patio house, a long heritage starting with the roman Domus. The inspiration comes both from the geometry of the house and the use of material. The house is designed to maximise the interior-exterior relation, extending the use of covered terraces and outdoor spaces, as well as a big central patio, the heart of the house. The patio organises the whole house, extending the spaces and creating a different outdoor space, intimate, relaxed and that works both as a winter sheltered outdoor area (the plot can be windy in Winter) and  as a natural summer ventilation element.

The villas are very big, and therefore a similar strategy to the building is needed in order to minimise impact. The house is exploded in different pieces, volumes, of different natural materials, as if they were a collection of Mallorcan architectures. All together, set around the patio, make the house, and the scale perception is visually reduced. The different materials come from the local tradition but set out in a contemporary way: “Piedra Seca” stone, a local limestone, the same used in the retaining garden walls, “Santanyi Stone”, a local sand stone, and White render, typical from the coastal areas. Every house is different depending on the material arrangement of the different pieces.



We are very grateful to the Terraza Balear team for the excellent work done on the interior design of the house, and for making this event possible. We are very proud of this project and we are very grateful for the recognition it is achieving.
