diploma project
Casa Binidali Vell, Menorca
The project aims to transform and redesign an old villa called Casa Binidali Vell into a vacation house-cum-lodge, which could be rented out to families on holiday tours.

The urge to create a tranquil unity with nature formed the basis of the approach. The design combines the delights of traditional Menorcan architecture and rural landscapes with modern dynamic treatment of space and form. The project aims at retaining the cultural identity of the place whilst equipping the villa with luxurious amenities. The compositions derived are an up-to-date interpretation that blends elements of local architecture with new language of design.

The new masterplan respects the contours to avoid cutting and filling, maintaining the vegetation and encouraging the presence of local birds and animals. Through showcasing local materials, skills and rural elements, the project confirms the guests’ expectations to spend their vacations in a cherished and maintained Menorcan setting.
