There is nothing more inspiring than breathing new life into abandoned and old properties. Especially, the ones with good bones and transformation potential. This week, my inspiration quest takes me to Spain, in the small town of Alaró, at the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains (Mallorca).

Camp Roig 31 is a modern family residence, impeccably renovated by Mallorca-based interior design and architecture studio DuRietz Design & Development. It is hard to believe this beautiful house was built originally as a warehouse for crops and meat. Since then it has acted as a shoe factory, an office, and a modest residence to several families, including the mayor of Alaró. When Josephine and Christoffer Durietz acquired the house, it was a complete ruin and abandoned for more than a decade.

Whoever renovated an old property knows how difficult is to predict the full extension of work. The same was with Camp Roig 31 as the state of the house revealed many construction challenges throughout but also good bones that allowed radical changes. To attain architectural heritage, designers tried to restore many antique details like original stone fireplaces and wooden carvings. They also infused the love for Mallorca lifestyle and tradition to bring out its full potential.

“We see the house fitting perfectly in a toned down art deco inspired theme mixed up with a strong Mallorcan heritage. Working with dramatic shapes created with natural materials and an earthy palette both inside and out. This all the while not loosing the utilitarian roots of the house.”

With 640 sqm, the century-old building unfolds over three levels, with the possibility of up to eight bedrooms, five bathrooms and a two car garage. For the comfort of the owners there’s also a home office, yoga room and well-stocked wine cellar with 150 bottles of house wine, produced locally on the island at Bodegas Son Puig. A special feature is the spacious roofed terrace with arched openings to the private expansive backyard, with spectacular views of the Alaró peaks.

Designers entrusted realisation of the kitchen and bathrooms to Espacio Home Design. Custom-made stripped cabinets made from solid walnut and matte varnish finish in combination with light cream travertine surfaces. To add a personal touch, many of the pieces in the home were custom-made by designers. That includes a walnut dining table paired with solid walnut and cotton cord ‘Josephine’ chairs. Also furniture pieces in bedrooms, the marble bedside tables, the study’s desk and wall shelving.

The highlight of the house is certainly 410 sqm private backyard. Featuring a large pool with sundeck, dining area with outdoor kitchen, landscaped garden and a raised terrace over the water tank. Such a generous outdoor space is enjoyable from the early morning sun for breakfast, to the sun-soaked pool deck relax, sunset-blessed veranda and al fresco dinners. Dream house indeed, a retreat place in every sense of the word.
