They only resorted to other islands such as Mallorca when they needed a material that was impossible to find on Formentera, always trying to get as close as possible.
We especially highlight the reuse of materials such as wood, which through the Deixalles Foundation (they manage objects that nobody wants, promoting the employment of people at risk of social exclusion), through which they recover old doors and wood that are subsequently restored and adapted for this project.
The bricks used have been made using an artisan process (clay created as in the olden days, earth, water and fire), baked in a traditional oven like those of yesteryear (metal box lined on the inside with adobe made by the artisans), and as materials for combustion they use biomass (it does not produce sulphur), based on almond shells, vegetable biomass, pine needles and pine wood chips.
For the “piedra de marès” they use quarries in Mallorca.
The tiles are glazed by hand by artisans from Felanitx and the lime, now almost obsolete, is also brought from there, which is also fired with recycled oils.
Under the motto “think global, act local”, they propose a model of hyper-local architecture, in which each project becomes a map of the territory’s resources. This approach makes it possible to link the environmental issue with the cultural tradition of each region, achieving not only the prevention of global warming and an improvement in air quality, but also a recovery of the landscape quality of the cities.
