Mallorca is the sort of island most people wouldn’t mind being stranded on. Because really, everything about it screams exotic: From the reddish soil and luxuriant olive groves to the cars and streets and people. Camp Roig 31 embodies that exoticism—to the point that it’s hard to imagine it was once a drab 1900s warehouse for crops and meat. The charmingly renovated townhouse, situated in the heart of Alaró, at the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains, has earned a modish rusticity, thanks to Josephine and Christoffer Du Rietz of design firm Durietz Design & Development.

With a 600-square-metre footprint, and an enormous sun-kissed courtyard overlooking the Alaró twin peaks, the dwelling, now home to a family, features over five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a wine cellar, a swimming pool, and a garage. And yet, despite its sprawling layout, the house brims with details: There are wooden carvings, stone fireplaces, and an airy terrace with arched openings to the expansive backyard with pastoral panoramas. But observe long enough and you’ll notice that beneath the modern updates, there’s a patina that alludes to the original architecture.

“It certainly had standout features, leaving us with plenty of room for new interpretations that still preserved the soul of the house,” says Josephine. The designers took equal inspiration from Art Deco themes and the home’s Mallorcan heritage, bringing to life an aesthetic defined by unfinished finishes, natural materials and earthy tones.

If there’s anything to be learned from the house, it would probably be the secret to aging gracefully. Josephine and Christoffer’s remodel allows the bones to shine through, as evidenced by the warm wooden elements and unfussy stucco walls.

The living areas are divided across three floors, with each serving a specific purpose: Dinner parties and gatherings are hosted in the open-to-courtyard ground floor realm, the first floor acts as a knock-back or television den, and then, there’s an attic lounge designed to serve as a hideaway from the fiery Mallorcan sun. The dining area flows out of the ground floor living room, making it a nice little extension to the sofa table.

The family’s penchant for fine wine is showcased (literally) in the fabulous wine cellar, located at the bottom of the house. “The cellar is protected from external light and heat, and carefully temperature-controlled,” shares Christoffer. As he opens the door, it’s clear that what lies beyond is nothing short of a wine connoisseur’s paradise. “The cellar is stocked with 150 bottles of house wine, produced locally on the island at Bodegas Son Puig.”

With daisy rafters and mottled walls, the bedrooms are a picture of coastal cool. Each one features custom marble bedside tables and Daphine lights from Lumina. The headboards are custom-made, while the natural linen bed covers are from Yutes. “We designed every bedroom to be pitch black until its occupant decides it is time to get up, however early or late,” smiles Josephine.
