Harris Architects Mallorca

About

We specialise in designing unique contemporary houses in Mallorca, in tune with their surroundings, their context, their climate and their owners. Harris Architects & Designers are registered architects in both the UK and Mallorca with established professional experience in both Northern and Mediterranean cultures.

In Spain, Harris Architects & Designers focus on creating homes, from award-winning self-sufficient private houses to sensitive refurbishments of historical homes.

Over the last 20 years we have built throughout Mallorca and are familiar with all sides of the island’s character and its administrations.

The studio in Mallorca is now directed by Sebastian Harris.                      Services

AWARD WINNING ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN:

SUSTAINABLE and site specific HOMES FOR THE 21ST CENTURY

Based in Mallorca since 2000 we have concentrated on sustainability as an essential framework for our designs. We understand sustainability not only as a means to reduce the waste of resources and energy but also as a way to tie our designs into their context – houses designed for Mallorca and no where else, reinterpreting local materials, design strategies and relationships from an utterly modern perspective. The warmth of the winter sun, and its glaring heat in summer, the cooling sea breeze across the site or the Tramuntana gales all call for designs which control the conditions of the home while accentuating the superb natural qualities of Mallorca. For these reasons, our design for a self-sufficient house in a fig orchard was recognised with the Mallorca Architecture Prize for best house, by the Balearic Chapter of Architects. It also featured on Channel 4’s Homes by the Med.

Background

OVER 40 YEARS OF PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE IN SPAIN AND THE UK

Harris Architects & Designers began in practice in the UK in the 1970s, before re-locating to Mallorca in the late 1990s. From this long-established experience including public and private housing, schools, health, leisure and historical projects, we have developed our approach to design integrating both Mallorcan and British architecture and design.
