Restored Mallorcan Oil Mill by Architect Durval Dias Junior
This beautiful rural home, spotted on Nuevo Estilo, is situated in Algaida, in the heart of Mallorca, Spain has passed through many uses since it was built in the 1700’s. It was once an inn, then a winery, an oil mill, and then it was abandoned and forgotten. Architect Durval Dias Junior discovered this historical ruin and decided to transform it into a breathtaking refuge. This typical rural construction fascinated the architect by the endless possibilities that it offered. As stated by the architect, “it retained in good condition many ancient elements that gave a clear identity.” It was his respect for these elements, and his desire to maintain them, that defined the rehabilitation.
