A White Oasis on the Coast of Mallorca: Cala Marmacen Villa by Alberto Rubio

Although its foundation dates from the 60s, this villa has clearly come a long way — thanks to a new vision by architect Alberto Rubio. Cala Marmacen Villa is one of Rubio’s “bird houses”; it’s a collection of four bedroom suites, heated floors, panoramic windows, a three-car garage, a Jacuzzi, chef’s kitchen, and more — 5,800 square feet worth of luxury to be precise. But numbers can’t begin to describe this home with its unique swooping roofline (think “wings”) and its outstanding décor. The shapely façade of the roof is echoed in a semicircular infinity pool, curved wicker lounger (complete with long cylindrical pillows), and meandering staircase that seems to float on the air. And what lies beyond that roof, and beneath it, is equally sublime.

Step from the lower-level pool up a staircase fronted by rugged stone — and discover another trademark detail that carries through the house. Seeing sunbaked rock through a wall of glass in one spacious bath gives an “outdoor” feeling to a soak in the deep tub. The rock wall further defines areas of the house — including a secluded nook with leopard-print chair — and provides its own decorative backdrop for an all-white sitting area. Other colors do make appearances in the house, but only subtly: a creamy rug here, accessories of blue, red, or orange. Paired with gleaming stainless steel in the kitchen appliances are colors of the sea and sand — white and ocean blue — making Cala Marmacen Villa truly a white “oasis” on the shores of Mallorca, Spain.
