Joan Riera and Francisco Barcelo designed this minimal home in Cala Galiota. From the street, onlookers are greeted with a blank stucco privacy wall, garage door, and dark recessed entry door. Upon entering the front courtyard, however, the nature of the home shifts noticeably. A lush green lawn, shaded patio, and slatted windows create a tranquil inner atmosphere, which is carried into the interior. Rich wood floors complement the understated décor inside, with daylight streaming in from the numerous windows. The slatted windows are carried onto the rear elevation, where they compose nearly the entire façade. The slats create dramatic shadows and strategically shade the interior throughout the course of the day, providing passive climate control.
