Casa Aruma arises from the understanding of the traditional context and culture of Mallorca. The design decisions are marked by a south-north slope of the land, landscape and unobstructed views to the north and west and an exceptional pine tree to the south.
A house with a privileged position in the environment, which seeks to remain open but at the very same time preserve its privacy. This gives rise to two courtyards that provide light and privacy to the first floor and a terrace on the second floor that opens onto the salinas (salt pans). A principal volume that is stepped in section to create spatial continuity between the ground floor and the first floor.
The first floor opens to the south and north through a pergola that allows the extension of the interior space to the outside creating a tangible spatial and visual continuity. The house is integrated into the environment using local materials and shades of ochre, which together with the green of the trees creates a harmony that conveys peace and tranquility.
