CIENTO7 – A CASUAL SUMMER HOUSE IN A PRIME LOCATION OF SANTA PONSA …
Ciento7 is located in a quiet street, in the lower part of the „Ensaimada” area. In the immediate vicinity you can find sandy beaches, no less than three golf clubs, a WTA tennis centre and two exclusive marinas – including famous Port Adriano designed by star architect Philippe Starck. Santa Ponsa town offers a fantastic infrastructure with shops, supermarkets, international medical centres and private schools – all within a five-minute drive.
The project „Ciento7“ is new terrain for us, since until now, all our recent projects were new-build’s. The villa attracted us at first sight. The concept of a generous bungalow villa, without stairs, matches perfectly our very own ideas of a family-oriented living concept. On top of it we see a constant demand for single-floor houses. There is also an open, very bright living area, with high ceilings and a typical Mediterranean style, clients are looking for. Rather than having to make major changes to the layout, this project is about taking advantage of the existing features and benefits of the property and letting it shine again, by focusing on technical and design upgrades.
Together with our team of designers and architects, we have created a contemporary - Mediterranean gem that can easily keep up with today’s new builds.
Ciento7 - a casual summer house in a prime location of Santa Ponsa ...
The Villa Ciento7 is stylistically the perfect combination of a Mediterranean finca and a modern villa (as we otherwise construct). As a resume, we can say, we turned the concept around. So far, we have been building a very progressive, sometimes even minimalist architecture, adding Mediterranean elements to it. This time, the base is a Mediterranean house, which is complemented by modern, straightforward elements. These include the huge modern aluminium windows, taking out traditional shutters, adding modern doors without moldings, straightening the pool and tiling with a contemporary stone floor.
In the entrance area, a modern corridor with wooden slats awaits you. An Entre', which directly triggers a wow-feeling with guests! Furthermore, a traditional Canto-Rodado natural stone floor, as you know it probably from Palma's old town palaces, is found. An element that we have copied from our old town project Pau7, because it has consistently created excitement with our clients. Another detail that is found in all our projects, is our natural stone. We speak of the traditional and UNESCO World Heritage-recognized dry-stone walls with locally sourced Santanyi stone. This beautiful stone is a guarantee for a warm ambience and must not be missing in any of our houses ?
The living area has a visible beam construction with high ceilings. The large aluminium windows in the living area, belong to the family of frameless minimal windows, of the series CORE-VISION and are usually found in minimalist design villas. We adapted the window type and gave it a lattice-window style, that creates a Mediterranean ambience without jeopardizing the perfect functionality nor light, that come with these windows. As usual with our projects, Ciento7 also has an tailormade furniture with a natural stone base and integrated fireplace. The exclusive, wooden fireplace by KALFIRE from the Netherlands is state-of-the-art and blends harmoniously into the TV furniture. But the highlight of the open-plan living-dining area, certainly is the large kitchen with cooking island. This is the first ever installed model of the "FRAME" series, in the Balearic Islands. The latest release of the very exclusive kitchen manufacturer MODULNOVA from Italy. Fronts in elegant walnut as well as an elaborate interior with variable shelves and LED lighting, set this kitchen apart. The cooking island is an eye-catcher just by its size of more than three meters in length with an oversized XTONE worktop in marble finish. But not only the design is leading the way here. In addition to the Gaggenau oven + microwave, Miele refrigerators, the BORA hob & Teppanyaki is another novelty, awaiting you. Whether you prepare scrambled eggs for the family in the morning, or Gambas in company of your friends in the evenings, kitchen entertainment is guaranteed.
Next to the main kitchen, there is also the side kitchen / laundry room. Ideal for parties and events or if you have an external caterer in the house that needs to prepare dishes.
Ciento7 has a total of 4 bedrooms. Two of them with bathrooms en-suite. The master bedroom offers a lot of living comfort on approx. 35m2. A made to suit headboard design with integrated illumination and use of a wallpaper makes this suite pretty unique. There is also a small make-up table and generous, custom-built wardrobe with interior lighting. The bathroom combines the ever-popular Gris-Balear natural stone with a modern PORCELANOSA design tile. The combination works perfectly and creates a fresh approach to the regular stone bathroom design, that for long times has been dominating bathrooms in Mallorca. Bathroom fittings from the Color Edition series by GROHE, support this individual look. Much importance was also placed on the latest technology. That`s why a modern shower toilet from Geberit can be found in this bathroom. Geberit toilets with the latest DuoFresh system are also used in the remaining bathrooms.
Apart from the master bedroom, there are two very spacious guest or children's rooms, which share a modern bathroom with a shower. Again, the natural stone look is complemented with modern and hand-picked design tiles from our interior designer. The latest ALAPE washbasins are also used, as are rain showers and smart LED light technology in the bathrooms. The third bedroom has a modern bathroom en-suite and is therefore ideal for visitors.
Planning the outdoor area of Ciento7, we have put a lot of emphasis on a summer-time use. However, summer in Mallorca means, nearly 300 days a year ?
In fact, you spend a lot of time outdoors, which is why the terraces here have a special meaning. However, in Ciento7 we have added a singular element: A private beach club or "Chiringuito" as it is called in the Balearic Islands. This area, which is right next to the pool, offers everything you need on hot summer days ... a small outdoor kitchen with bar where you can prepare tapas or cocktails, a cozy lounge with a rustic wooden dining table for the casual lunch or BBQ with friends. Relax and enjoy the day by the pool under a shady pergola, sip cool drinks and watch the kids playing in the pool. This "Chiringuito" ensures true quality of life and is on hot days, certainly the centre of the house. Apart from the pool itself of course...? The Mediterranean garden is beautifully lit in the evening and also offers lawn areas where children can play safely.
Ciento7 is first and foremost an exclusive, yet easy to maintain holiday home. Technically, the house offers everything you would expect from a luxury property. A modern air-water heat pump for the supply of hot water, air conditioning and underfloor heating. The entire air conditioning system is controlled by a modern, but intuitive domotic system based on KNX. Even parts of the home lighting can be controlled via a this smarthome system, conveniently with the smartphone from home. So where else do we set standards apart from the features already mentioned ... e.g. with the modern and insulated side sectional door from Germany by HÖRMANN, which can be controlled by smartphone too, the first-class aluminum windows from CORTIZO & CORE-VISION, which e.g. in the bathrooms have recessed and concealed window handles, the front door, made of fine wood and with modern insulation and locking mechanisms, made in Germany (Schmidt-Visbek), the light switches of the company JUNG, which being of "Le Corbusier" series, have a special Finish and color, the laundry room, which is not recognizable as such, can serve as a kind of side-kitchen, GROHE fittings with a certain brushed nickel finish and of course elaborate carpenter works with high quality doors with concealed hinges and magnetic lock as well as design handles. All these elements are carefully and with a attention to detail designed and selected by our interior designer Marga Comas, based in Palma, who also planned the furnishing-concept made of Italian, German and Spanish brands, with corresponding lights, that complete the package.
