Located in the south of Mallorca, John Pawson’s effortlessly cool Neuendorf House is a site to behold. Originally designed for a German art dealer, the pink-tinted structure is nestled within an almond grove and offers tranquil sea and mountain views.
Built between 1987 and 1989, John Pawson and Claudio Silvestrin’s first full architectural project the Neuendorf House (also known as Els Comellars) has become a design classic.
Indoor / outdoor living
Its grand proportions and cool stone construction play with the notion of bringing the indoors outside, its vertical lines with modest slits in the façade encouraging an ethereal play of light.
British architect John Pawson is well regarded as the master of creating cool, calm spaces and known the world over for his minimalist aesthetic. With the Neuendorf House, he achieves a striking balance between an effortless island abode and exaggerated proportions. Playing with the opposition of the formality of architecture and raw nature, the pink-tinted home was pigmented with Mallorca’s red soil to reference the landscape in which this holiday home stands.
Not only does the Neuendorf House offer an escape from the hot Mallorcan sun, but also comes complete with a courtyard perfect for entertaining, a swimming pool, a sunken tennis court and beautiful landscaping. The building stands in complete harmony within its environment, thoughtfully designed to complement its surroundings.
An unbeatable holiday destination
Although originally created as a private holiday home, this elegant abode is now available for holiday lets, opening up this tranquil oasis to guests around the world. And what better place to slow down and take some time to contemplate, while drinking in the natural landscape of the beautiful island of Mallorca.
The 5-bedroom Neuendorf House is available to rent via neuendorfhouse.com, with prices starting at €4000/week.
