Summer home

Pablo Serrano Elorduy is a Spanish architekt, who was asssigned to design a summer house on Menorca, the biggest of the Balear Islands. The main goal of the project was appropriate distribution of the interior and its decent connection with the exterior allowing both spaces to complement each other. Relations with the surroundings is not only important because of the beautiful scenery around, but also because they affect the comfort of living. The architect was inspired by the typical Menorca “tanca”, stone walls, dividing and separating territories. “Menorquinas” wooden sliding slats filtering intensive sunshine and creating privacy were inspirational for the design of pergolas. They combine the vertical plates of the east and west fascades with horizontal ones of the south facade. Most of them are reaching the ceiling from the floor thus building an elegant continuous line. The interior is divided into three parts with a stairway in the centre connecting basement with the first floor. These parts are surrounded with several semi-open spaces at the sides creating a smooth transition between the exterior and the interior. The atmosphere exuded by the villa is striking and everyone who sees it must simply feel the ocean breeze stroking his hair at the very first sight.
