Spain’s Canyamel Bay offers exquisite views of marine life, rock-strewn outcrops, and dense shrubbery — but amidst the curious coastal locale, you can also find a selection of innovative homes tucked away within the hillside nooks. As an homage to both the sea and the local architecture, Estudio Caballero Colón’s Can Canyís House prospers as one of Illes Balears’ most beautiful dwellings.
The home’s multiple volumes are fabricated atop various stone platforms, relying on open, infinity-like windows, smooth glass surfaces, and polished foundations to provide a clean-cut look into the space’s angular design. Separate rectangular rooms integrate different styles of modern furniture, intersectional layouts, and purposeful wooden linework — thanks to lateral framing practices that allow light and shadows to mingle within the hallways of the dwelling. Four separate living areas extend from the mountainside, each with its own directional orientation and style — providing impeccable views of the bay below.
