The Olive Houses by Mar Plus Ask
The Olive Houses by Mar Plus Ask is the public vote winner in the small building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.

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.

Architect: Mar Plus Ask
