Three characteristics of today’s single-family dwellings

In the Balearic Islands there has always been a high percentage of detached houses. However, in recent years, we have noticed a significant increase in the construction of this type of housing, probably as a consequence of the pandemic caused by COVID-19,

Although we have to say that this is not something that is happening only in this region, as the whole of Spain is experiencing something similar. There are even some provinces where the demand for single-family homes has even increased by 65% after the long confinement experienced in 2020.

We are facing a new golden age of detached villas, probably because these years have made many people rethink where and how they want to live. And the result of this reflection has brought with it a commitment to homes surrounded by open spaces and with the presence of gardens.

As an architecture and interior design studio in Mallorca, today we would like to tell you what today’s single-family homes are like and what aspects we take into account when designing them and adapting them to the new demands.

How are single-family homes created today?

Creating new homes in which outdoor space and nature become just another element is our passion. In fact, as we have already told you, landscaping forms an indivisible part of our architectural projects. But do you want to know what are the three aspects around which the single-family homes we design in our studio revolve today?

1.- Homes in which interior and exterior are conceived as a whole.

For us it is impossible to conceive an isolated residential project without approaching both dimensions, the interior and the exterior, as a whole.

Only in this way is it possible to ensure that both spaces mutually enhance each other and get the most out of them both from an architectural point of view and from an aesthetic and functional point of view.

Therefore, the first key in the creation of single-family homes is to be clear that the environment will be the axis around which all our work will revolve.

2.- Dwellings in which sustainable materials predominate

Another key when developing this type of project is to prioritise the use of sustainable materials that have the minimum impact on the environment.

We are committed to replacing materials such as concrete or plastic which, as well as not being integrated in such a natural way, were harmful to the environment, with others such as stone, wood… We try not to use non-renewable raw materials and always look for materials that best fit in with the environment. It is also important to use renewable energies such as solar energy or LED lights.

3.- Homes that include automation and intelligent controls

The use of sustainable materials and renewable energies must go hand in hand with a home automation system that guarantees greater energy efficiency, as well as ensuring better enjoyment of the home. In our engineering and architectural projects we include customised home automation to programmatically control many aspects of the home, both indoors and outdoors.

We design smart single-family homes with home automation systems based on our experience and knowledge in engineering, lighting and audiovisuals.
