Nestled in a small coastal village in the Tramuntana region of Majorca, with beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea, is the home of French fashion and furniture designer Alexandre de Betak. Inspired by cave dwellings, the interior takes on an organic form, even shelves appear to push forth from natural rock to cradle the familys possessions. Rustic 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 Betaks 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...

Influenced by 1970s organic architecture, de Betak designed his unique home in its entirety, ignoring 90 degree angles and sharp edges throughout. The cool cave walls disappear as you reach the outside space of the summer hideaway for a dip in the pool, or lay out on the sun deck. A more naturally shaped pool to hug the house may have felt more fitting after exploring the curvy contours of the inner space, but the surrounding hilly views should be enough to take your mind off that. With a hectic career as a renowned events producer for clients such as Dior, Tiffany and Jennifer Lopez, this is the only place where de Betak stops to breathe and relax for an entire month. With a place as beautiful as this to rest his head, it’s amazing he can drag himself away at all.
