Public vote winner for small building of the year: High in the Mountains of Mallorca overlooking the Mediterranean Sea stands two small off-grid houses on man-made stone terraces surrounded by millennial old olive trees. Here only the grassing sheep and the wind is heard.
The Purple House, a transformed tool shed, serves for cooking and dinning while The Pink House reminiscent of mans first home, a cave, is built into the terraces with a bed, a fireplace and under a skylight a shower - supplied from a spring. The colours are exact complimentary to the olive leafs - making a vivid optic effect looking back into the landscape.
