Some call it the jewel in the Mediterranean’s crown, while others describe it as an oasis of peace. It is no easy task to capture the essence of a place that offers so many possibilities as Palma de Mallorca in just a few short words.
It is instantly evident that the Balearic capital today is a perfect mix of tradition and avant-garde style. When you pass through the city walls of the Old Town, endless charms await you. Indeed, every single nook and cranny is synonymous with Mediterranean beauty.
When you look at Can Santacília’s façade, you are gazing at 400 years of history. It has been a home to important 16th century figures. The Santacílias were one of those well-accommodated families from the Mallorcan nobility that decided to build a house over several generations in keeping with their status: a home that would bear their surname and reflect their social position and tastes.
The building’s earliest residents were high-ranking figures who enjoyed good conversation and valued the importance of good service and fine clothes. Over the years, important personalities stayed there, including Prince Luis of Bourbon’s widow and her daughter.
…because although time brings about changes, great moments in history do tend to repeat themselves.
We met up with Jaime Oliver and Paloma Hernaiz, the directors of OHLAB, the architecture and interior design studio in charge of the Can Santacília development project. Both are closely familiar with Palma’s history and culture and they have extensive international experience in singular development projects. For these architects, this is not just another project but the outcome of a complex process that has gradually taken shape over the course of the years.
PALOMA HERNAIZ — Choosing items made of top-quality local natural materials that highlight the building’s history and Mediterranean essence was fundamental in this project. We’ve used a basic selection of fine materials, such as aged bronze items, local stone, large stretches of mirror and porcelain details, in addition to restoring traditional features like structural stone elements, wrought iron door fittings or old ceilings.
