openhouse-magazine-a-raw-paradise-architecture-can-lis-by-jorn-utzon-mallorca-spain1 I have posted about Can Lis before, but when i saw on one of my favourite blogs, somewhere i would like to live, these wonderful pictures, i had to post again. this is my kind of architecture to a tee. in all it is a traditional building of the area made our of the local stone, with just enough architectural details and a wonderful use of space, that doesn’t make the building stand out, yet fit into its surroundings and become a wonderful family home, and place to live. and who could pic a better position.
