- Architecture & development
Once upon a time there was a German art dealer who had a holiday home built. The year: 1989. The location: Majorca. The architect: John Pawson. The result: timeless.
It was the very first full architectural project by John Pawson, who was commissioned to design a holiday home together with Claudio Silvestrin in 1987. Two years later, the owner was able to move in. And now you can do the same, because Neuendorf House can now be rented as a holiday residence where you can stay with a total of eleven guests and enjoy the peace and nature.
"This holiday home was built 30 years ago, but given the timelessness of the design it could just as well have been finished yesterday."
The domain is described as an art installation 'grand in scale and humble in tone' with sharp lines and geometric shapes that evoke a modern interpretation of antiquity. A lot of attention is paid to the relationship between inside and outside with terraces and a large inner courtyard (atrium). Pawson and Silvestrin emphasize this by the high walls with sudden openings that reveal a phenomenal view of Majorca's unique landscape. The 30-metre-long infinity pool also responds to this concept of dramatic proportions and volumes. All this is emphasized by the simple color palette and the minimalist, yet luxurious interior. Timelessness guaranteed!
Neuendorf House offers privacy, tranquillity and all the comfort you could need. The beautiful weather on this Spanish island is free of charge. And after you're well rested and want to do something more active, we recommend hikes in the area or a match on the tennis court of this residence.
