Balearic Islands Hotel
n 1967, a small hotel, Hotel Castell dels Hams, was established on the island of Majorca amid the Mediterranean vegetation. Over time, and through subtle improvements and extensions, it has become one of the most distinctive hotels on the eastern part of the island. The last of the alterations, meant to celebrate the Mediterranean light and the location’s idyllic bond with nature, turned the hotel into much more than just a holiday destination.

Sports Center Sa Indiotería
Instead of the image of an hermetic pavilion, here the intention is to give continuity from the inside space to the outside one. The building is implemented to bury the court and the locker rooms. The schema allows to go through, without visual barriers, from the park to the covered platform, to the stands, and finally descending to the court.

Jørn Utzon moved to Majorca in the early 1970s, following the stress of the Sydney Opera House debacle, living in a house designed by himself.

With his wife Lis & family he later moved to another house designed by himself, Can Feliz. The architecture is very solid and simple. A small window allows light to funnel in to the living space at a certain time of year and time of day. The views over the Mediterranean are fantastic and the exterior space uses beautiful chunky stone benches by the architect. This second home on Majorca has been described as a miniature acropolis.
