The Neuendorf House designed by John Pawson and Claudio Silvestrin in 1991, is a vacation house for a German art dealer set in an almond grove on the island of Mallorca. The house uses materials and colors characteristic of the island’s traditional architecture in a renewing formal vocabulary.

Villa Neuendorf is a rigorous parallelopiped whose monolithic presence is counteracted on all façades by the presence of “cuts” in various positions with different orientations to prevent any form of monotony.
