Ambient almond groves
Luxury villa in Mallorca Els Comellars is the fruit of a collaboration between two masters of minimalist design, John Pawson and Claudio Silvestrin. Approached by a slender stepped path, this villa first greets the eye with an imposing wall of pinkish clay, which rises fortress-like from the surrounding almond groves. As entrances go, it’s more than a little intriguing – and it only gets better once you step inside. A place of geometric shapes and clean white interiors, El Comellars showcases architecture pared down to the essentials. Grand exteriors give way to bright, peaceful living spaces and bedrooms, which prove that for all its minimalist focus, this is still very much a home. Distinctly family friendly, the villa has a 30-metre pool with a shallow paddling section, a sandpit and even a mini sunlounger. To top it all off, much of the design plays with light and shadow, making both the sunrise and sunset here a thing to behold.
