Glass Apartment of 30m2, with panoramics sea view over the beach of Palma de Mallorca. Due to the small size of the place, we decided to leave all the open space, incorporating two reflective cubes that contain the private spaces of the apartment. The arrangement of these two pieces allows to be seen the sea from all points of the house, understood as two large lenses that reflect the sea outside. Through natural light and polychromatic qualities a chameleon effect is achieved, where these two pieces capture the color of the sky and the sea, introducing different tonalities to the interior.

Study dedicated to the creation, adaptation, modification and management of architectural and urban spaces in all areas, developing building projects, rehabilitation, interior design, furniture design, installation and ephemeral. A2arquitectos has been awarded with numerous national and international awards, developing projects in Spain and abroad, and our works have been exhibited at the Palais of Tokio at Paris, the Mixed Art Museum of Munich, the modernist site of Sant Pau at Barcelona and the Center of Architecture at New York.
