OH BE-CAVE! Architect in Spain turns tatty tool shed into stunning cave home

Mallorca Cave Home1

MAR Vicens has hammered out a generational project in Mallorca by turning her father’s ramshackle tool shed into a fabulous living space.

The 34-year-old Spanish architect teamed up with her Dutch partner, Ask Anker Aistrup, 39, also an architect, in 2015 to begin work on this perfect hideout hidden in the Tramuntana mountains.

The site had been bought for Mar on her 16th birthday and the family, originally from Valencia, often went for a day out at weekends, but could never stay over, something which is now possible.

The couple’s company Mar Plus Ask have created two miniscule off-grid structures, each measuring around 120sqft.

The project, which took them just four months to complete, enshrines the concept of minimalism with natural materials. 

Their designs can be seen throughout Spain, as well as in Copenhagen, Stockholm and Berlin.
