German-born/Mallorca-based architect Bernd Schmahl then received the commission to design the bodega based on the underlying Mètode Gravetat concept; it would be an architectonic work of art, incorporating and harmonizing the various practical and aesthetic desires of the owners as well as the technical requirements posed by Pollença’s municipal architecture office. Civil engineer Juan Artigues was responsible for on-site management of construction. One of the major challenges he faced was acquiring a construction permit in the first place; the site is part of the Tramuntana, which has been declared a World Heritage Site by the UN. The rules are strict and many for new buildings here, and rightly so. Too much construction in recent years has made no contribution to preserving or enhancing the island's landscape. A clever solution was ultimately found, however: the bodega was constructed within the confines of the quarry, integrated to be barely visible against the landscape. Necessity may be the mother of invention, but here it proved a bringer of good fortune as well. Because the temperatures inside the bodega remain constant and low, no additional cooling of the wines is required — even at the height of summer.
