Jorge Bibiloni Studio
OD House, designed by Jorge Biblioni Studio and located in the small village of Alaró on the Spanish island of Mallorca, celebrates a mindful interaction with the terrain and traditional architecture without compromising its graceful transition into contemporary conversations.
Inside, Jorge Bibiloni Studio focused the home’s design language on textures and shape rather than color. The interior is a sculptural refuge, with the silvery green landscape framed by natural lumber to activate the bark on the trees and the rust tones in the rocky terrain outside.
The soft volumes below are counterbalanced by two floors of pure open space highlighted by recovered oak beams that span the ceilings’ width.
The consistent use of materials on walls, floors, and stairwells creates a cocoon-like atmosphere that absorbs natural light and provides a natural canvas for shadow play.
Despite this constant subordination to the outdoors, the dwelling retains its profound sense of shelter.
OD House’s architecture and interior design incorporate an artisanal story through its clean lines, soaring proportions, and sweeping use of concrete across the horizontal and vertical planes.
As the memory of the sun radiates off the stone walls of the home, it’s easy to envisage lazy nights spent here after sunset.
Throughout OD House there is the feeling of the home being formed from the clay on the earth it sits on.
Outside, the scenery is the star. The home’s threshold is shaded by a modest cane and iron pergola, while the remainder of the immediate surrounds, like the interior, is sparse and drenched in the bleached, off-white hues of air-dried clay.
