FACTS AND MATERIALS

Marés sandstone:
Majorcan sandstone was traditionally used as a building material for houses, country homes and auxiliary farm buildings. The outer walls and columns in Can Lis use this type of stone in a cavity wall construction: an innovative reworking of traditional Majorcan building methods.

Santanyi sandstone:
A Majorcan sandstone with a higher density than Marés, Santnayi is ideal for flooring, interior walls and kitchen worktops.

Other materials:
The main roof construction is composed of modular tiled vaults called "bovedillas" supported by armoured concrete beams. The interior walls are Santanyi sandstone, as are the floor, the built-in shelves and the worktops in the kitchen. All woodwork is Madera Norte, a Majorcan pine.
