Welcome to Estudio Gayo de Arquitectura in Mallorca
Estudio Gayo is an architecture and landscaping studio specialised in high-end homes refurbishment in Mallorca.
Estudio Gayo develop projects that unite tradition and modernity, the local and the international, the cultured and the popular.
Mallorca is where the studio is located, and the Balearic Islands are the source of inspiration and learning. The Mediterranean landscape, its mild climate, and the outward-looking lifestyle that is so characteristic of the island underline the projects together with the materials chosen and the construction systems. It’s all about really living in Mallorca; it couldn’t be anywhere else.
And so, absorbing the tradition and essence of the island, timeless architecture is conceived. Free from trends, that aspires to age with dignity.
The traditional style of the island has a certain austere, unpretentious character, in which everything has a reason for being and with which I feel a strong identity. Using natural materials that age well, such as stone, wood, clay, lime mortar… architecture that lives and breathes in the Balearic Islands.
Estudio Gayo was established by Laura Gayo, who heads up all the projects, together with a team of handpicked professionals who support her according to the needs of each specific project. Quantity surveyors, project managers, engineers, archaeologists, historians, restorers, interior designers, craftsmen, landscapers and gardeners… We form multidisciplinary teams of professionals with a proven track record, both from the Balearic Islands and internationally.
Over the past 10 years, our work in Mallorca has given us the tools and know-how to handle the specific idiosyncrasies of the islands and to know how to overcome the bureaucratic obstacles that often arise in the construction sector. To be able to complete the dream project without distorting it, whilst maintaining budget costs and deadlines under control.
We always conceive our projects integrating the landscape with the architecture. The connection between the interior and exterior is central and the Mediterranean landscape plays a key role in most of our projects.
My projects pivot around this vision and to serve the people who live in them, with my utmost respect for the landscape, tradition, and local culture.
Every house I design is conceived for this specific place, the Balearic Islands.
