We enter a placeas a story: we get used to it, we a ppropriate it.In the heart of the island of Menorca, protected from the a gressions of the modernity and the mass tourism, there is a place over hanging the harbor where stands a palace from the XVIII century.Can Faustino is an invitation to dream and to the peace of mind.
I wanted to infuse a part of modernity to the so bermajesty of the place by adding and opposing materials,colors and shapes in order to reveal its quiet beauty.
All is matter of respect and balance.It is very important forme to reach an harmony between a building and it senvironment. I’ve tried to adacontemporary breath to a place full of history, stimulated by the challenge to reinvent it. It is this special soul coming from Can Faustino that we haved esired to enhancein order to find what is insideus.
Menorca is the last medi terr an eanparadise and a UNESCO’s bios pherereserve.The is land is dotted with crystal clear water coves and sandy white beach esalla long its coast line.The entire island’ slandscape is protected and its whimsical scenery changes in line with these a sons with out losing any of its charm.
