LP House Formentera
Formentera is a small beautiful island in the Balearics, famous for its sea, its beaches of fine white sand and for having been the destination in the 1960s for many hippies who found unspoiled nature and an easy way of life. It is there that we find this magnificent retreat designed by Pierluigi Molteni. The LP House is located in a position of great charm, on a rocky ridge overlooking the sea. It consists of a series of patios that give privacy and shelter from the wind, to create a sort of small casbah where every single corner lives of particular visuals and atmospheres. The villa consists of two main buildings and other secondary ones, interconnected by open spaces. The old savina, a typical island tree, is the visual fulcrum of those who walk along the entrance patio. From here the path leads through a well-studied promenade to flow into the sea, opening into the covered portico covered with cane. The furnishings are all antique, reclaimed or vintage, except for the stainless steel kitchen, the only modernist and high-tech area. Great attention has also been paid to the light, the materials and colors, they are all linked to the islands themes.
