design et al are pleased to announce that Knox Designs have been shortlisted for the International Design and Architecture Awards 2016 in the Residential £5 Million Plus (Property by Value) category.
This contemporary and luminous home, on four storeys cascading down towards the shore, is graced by magnificent views of the Southwestern coast of the island of Majorca. Design and décor aim to ‘bring the outside in’ – endeavouring to render a seamless depiction of sea, sky, sunshine and architecture.
This stunning property was designed to take full advantage of the view at any time of the year. The leitmotif of luxurious gold and azure is present throughout the outdoor spaces. It consists of all weather white furniture by Rausch, with a spatter of Mediterranean hues in the soft fabrics and throw pillows, elegantly and comfortably arranged around the infinity pool. The open-plan living area boasts a picture window with spectacular views replicated on the mirrored wall opposite, cleverly concealing the flat TV screen, with a stylish fireplace along the wall. Plush gold carpeting and Missoni soft furnishings draped over bespoke sofas in Designers’ Guild fabrics spell year-round comfort and luxury.
The dining room features a custom-made lime-washed oak table extending under two original driftwood ceiling lamps. All bedrooms have their own ensuite and outdoor private area. One of the most astonishing features of the bathroom shown here is the panoramic view from the shower, taking advantage of the absolute privacy that this house affords – all intimacy witnessed only by the
open sea and sky.
The four bedrooms plus guest apartment, the lift, the sauna, the off-street parking, the full domotic system, heating and air conditioning all constitute an alluring proposition for a young and wealthy market seeking a luxury, stylish and unique second-home. A summer home for those in pursuit of a blend of sophistication, simplicity and luxury, with a young and modern layout, replete with entertainment spaces and quiet tranquil spaces alike.
