Binifaldó is a single-family home in the exclusive residential enclave of Son Vida, Mallorca, representing the essence of Mediterranean sophistication.

Commissioned by a young Mallorcan couple, whose lives revolve around his professional demands as a prominent athlete, this home embodies a fusion of functionality and elegance, providing a perfect sanctuary for their stays on the island.

From its elevated position in a mountainous area, Binifaldó offers impressive panoramic views of the Bay of Palma, featuring exceptional architectural design that gracefully integrates with the natural surroundings.

The main challenge in designing the house was the irregular topography of the land, as it is a plot with a significant slope where the street level is considerably below the ground floor level. 

This challenge was masterfully addressed by architect Jaime Salvá, who took advantage of the slope by incorporating two basements. One houses the parking and access to the residence, while the other includes a cinema and a gym.

An interior courtyard ensures that all rooms have a southern orientation, maximizing natural light and views.

Continuity between the interior and exterior is achieved through the consistent use of materials such as natural stone flooring and dry stone walls, creating a harmonious and serene atmosphere throughout the space.

The ground floor offers integrated living, dining, and kitchen spaces, as well as a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.

The upper floor houses three bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. The furniture, meticulously selected by the owner couple, completes the atmosphere of elegance and serenity.
