The materiality and formal logic of this single house are drawn from its location. Casa es Carnatge sits in front of the abandoned stone quarries of Son Mosson at the Palma Bay. Through a double stone skin facade we abstract inhabiting of the noise pollution from the neighboring airport and search into the Marés a way of being. The matter austerity results in formal wealth by searching the top expressive state of each material and reducing their number. The Marés is the principal actor of this house: sand brown forming an outside eroded and highly expressive together with the rusted steel window sills. Wealth nuances are provided by pure white in the inside to the soft light that contains.
