Casa Palerm

Casa Palerm is a 180m2 vacation house. The house was built with simple solutions. Nonetheless, there was attention to detail in both architecture and interior design and also in energy efficiency terms. Some undertaken strategies were: Reducing the sun’s impact on the pergola, Majorcan shutters on the windows and planting trees next to the house; recollecting rainwater by a water cistern below the north terrace and using it for watering plants and filling the pool; allowing cross ventilation for air renovation through using facing windows and a narrow volume to allow more natural light inside the house. The use of local materials such as wood, rustic lime mortar, ceramic roof tiles, mares local stone, and traditional architectonic details were essential, to integrate the house into the environment and contribute to the zero-kilometer philosophy.

What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
The challenges of the project were to manage a low budget and meet the requirements of the strict restrictions of rural areas. The project follows a discreet architecture, being integrated within its surrounding environment and performing efficiently, both economically and energetically
