Roots are attached to tradition but trees are directions to the future. The first full residential project of Marcel Wanders, the 850m2 residence embodies Marcels’ vision in each of its curved corners. The conversion and extension of the Mediterranean sixties villa, gave birth to a friendly meeting between old and new. The subtle mix of classical and modern references is visible through the entire villa, from the classic profiled wall lining the curved space to the newly custom designed cupboards in straight yet classic lines. A unique atmosphere emerges as space is turning into a playground for reliefs and surfaces. House of contrasts and love between past and present, Casa Son Vida is “unavoidably exuberant and unabashedly outrageous.” Located in Mallorca, Casa son Vida was completed in 2009.
