Situated on a steep slope in the Mallorcan coastal village of Port de Sóller, Cingle 30 offers stunning panoramic views of the bay and the Serra de Tramuntana mountains. Consisting of a fair-faced concrete cube which extends out above a substructure of traditional quarry stone walls, the house appears to grow out of the terraced hillside.
There are three bedrooms on the upper level. Here, the ceramic sliding elements in front of the broad windows are not merely an interesting design element – they also offer sun protection and privacy. On the lower level you will find the open-plan living area with a sitting area by the fireplace, as well as a dining area and kitchen. Panoramic windows frame the spectacular views and merge the interior and exterior spaces. And when the sliding windows are open, they disappear completely into the walls and the lower level becomes an outdoor living room – complete with a terrace and a pool.
The interior design with its simple, reduced furnishings also allows the scenery to take centre stage. Only limited materials were used: the dominant fair-faced concrete is contrasted by white walls, white doors and white staircases.
