Banyalbufar is a coastal village nestled within the mountain range of the Serra de Tramuntana. The project involved restoring the main structure, roof and facade, as well as rearranging the interiors.


The main strategy consisted on removing all non-original elements added over the years in order to enhance the character of the house, from floors to furniture.


Once cleaned, new contemporary elements were introduced.
This balance between new and old, sleek and rustic brings a new life to Can Rei, allowing to understand traditional architecture through a contemporary lens.
