Coastal Cave House by Alexandre de Betak
French Designer, Located in a small village in the Tramuntana territory from Majorca, with a great view of the Mediterranean Sea, is home of French fashion and furniture designers Alexandre de Betak. Inspired by cave dwelling, by taking the interior in the original form, even a shelf apparently pushed out from natural stone to cradle of the family possessions. Rural wooden beams, doors and furniture warm the stone surroundings of this eco-friendly construction, and ceilings are cut away in seemingly random patterns of abat-jours in the hallway.
In de Betak's own words:
For 10 years I was dreaming about it, for five years I was looking for a spot for it, for two years working on it, for another two years building it, and finally here it is Coastal Cave House was created...
Affected on 1970s organic architecture, de Betak designing unique homes thoroughly, and ignore the 90 degree angles and sharp edges throughout. Cool cave walls disappear when you approach the outside space of a summer hideaway for a dip in the pool, or lay out on the sun deck. Form a natural shaped pool surrounding the house that might find it more appropriate after exploring the curved contour of the inner room, but the hilly landscape around should be enough to distract you from it. With a hectic career as a famous producer for clients such as Dior, Tiffany, and Jennifer Lopez, this is one place where Betak stopping to breathe and relax for a month. With Coastal Cave House that was designed by de Betak, it's amazing he can drag himself away at all.
