We are pleased to share the exciting news that our project “Paseo Mallorca 15” was honored with the prestigious 2023 Ciutat de Palma “Guillem Sagrera” Architecture Award, presented by the City Council of Palma. This recognition acknowledges our project as the best work carried out in Palma in the past two years, highlighting excellence in design, sustainability, and contribution to the urban environment.
The award was presented by the mayor during the recent Ciutat de Palma Awards ceremony, held on Saturday, January 20th, at the Teatre Principal de Palma. We are thrilled to receive this award, which was presented to Paloma Hernaiz and Jaime Oliver, the directors of OHLAB, in recognition of their vision and leadership in the project.
“Paseo Mallorca 15,” located on Paseo Mallorca, reflects our dedication to contextual and sustainable architecture. The fragmented design respectfully responds to the surroundings, with a facade of wooden slats acting as a dynamic solar filter, optimizing energy efficiency. Following Passivhaus standards, the project sets a new benchmark in nearly zero-energy constructions.
This project stands out for the integration of natural elements, such as a wall of local cane vegetation paying homage to the Riera del Paseo Mallorca. An interior courtyard with vegetation and differentiated levels creates an oasis of tranquility in the heart of the city.
In the interior design of Paseo Mallorca 15, we carefully selected natural and local materials that highlight the Mediterranean essence. The palette of noble materials, including walnut, cedar, oak, lime plaster, and local stones, contributes to a unique experience for residents.
This award adds to the numerous recognitions that “Paseo Mallorca 15” has received nationally and internationally, solidifying its position as a benchmark in design and sustainability. We express our gratitude to everyone who contributed to this project and to our firm.
At OHLAB, we are committed to urban analysis, cultural research, and excellence in design. This recognition motivates us to continue advancing with a focus on sustainability and innovation. Thank you very much!
