Arxiduc building

 

Client: Pedro Ramis
Location: C/ Arxiduc Salvador 110, Palma de Mallorca
Area: 531 m²
Project: 2006
Completion of work: 2009

This building, which has adjoining buildings either side, is situated in a built-up district of the area that was developed when the city expanded. It has one shop and four apartments. The four apartment balconies gave the façade a disjointed and unappealing appearance, a problem that was solved by combining them into a comb-shaped element opening towards the south, and painting them in colours that contrast with the rest of the façade.

 

 The dual orientation of the façades provide the apartments with ample cross ventilation and natural illumination.
