Gecko – Santa Ponça
Gecko is the name of a house located in a very quiet residential area of Santa Ponça. Our great friends and partners APM have given us the opportunity to turn this project into a very special house, characterised by a big personality.
The Terraza Balear interior design team, led by Carmen Pujol and Rosa Gost, was responsible for cossetting and studying the indoor space with particular affection.
The architecture of the house merges the Mallorcan style with a contemporary style based on straight lines with large windows. In this way, it achieves a magical connection between the outdoor and indoor spaces, which is so important on the islands. Access to the interior is via a courtyard, bringing a warm welcome to the inside. A large stone masonry wall embraces and distinguishes the entrance of the main living area. A room in which the sitting room, kitchen, dining room and study are joined by a large space with a surprising split level design.
The interior decorators pursued the harmony that accompanies the entire house based on a meticulous selection of natural materials, like stone, iron and wood. The neutral tones and natural fabrics that accompany the furnishings by firms like Minotti, Limited Edition, Meridiani and Paola Lenti, among others, definitely bring a source of inspiration to each and every one of the hourse’s nooks and crannies, based on the very essence of the Mediterranean, and manage to transmit an extremely welcoming feeling in every corner of the house. A home where elegance and modern style offer up a design that enhances exclusivity, not to forget simplicity and discretion.
