and inside, the surprise

Nuevo Estilo Nr. 488 / 2015

Icazar Architects gives us a lesson in illusionism with this new construction project that evokes an old rural Majorcan dwelling. The traditional materials and a serene chromatic palette are some of its tricks.


Award Winning Team | Intelligent Ideas

Inside Mallorca April 2015

There are places that captivate you in such a way that it’s as if you could feel their heartbeat: buildings, enfilades and interiors with a presence that reaches all your senses. Not only do they manage to capture the authentic spirit of their time, but they are characterised by a timeless quality and a subtle power of attraction that reconcile function and appearance to perfection. These “architectural personalities” form the object of the profession of ICAZAR Architects. This group of designers and project managers, based in Mallorca but working for customers from all over the world make it their goal to reflect the qualities that make each place unique, setting out to form a rapport with their demanding customers and complete work down to the last detail. In this way they create stunning buildings in the high-end hotel and residential segment.


Creative drive meets commitment to quality

PURE HAUTE MALLORCA LIVING 04/2014

Are you one of those people who checks in to a ho- tel based on its overall package of atmosphere, design and obliging service? Someone who notices outstanding craftsmanship, even in the smallest details? Someone who loves a stylish sports car not only for the deep-throated sound of its engine, but also because of the perfectly designed clearance of the body? Then you are probably the kind of person whose standards the ICAZAR Architects concept is perfectly designed to meet.


ICAZAR has grown

ICAZAR Newsletter Februar 2014

Dear Client and Partner, Dear Friends,

We have grown! This is the result of joining together with two longstanding partners: firstly, Oliver Borries and his team, and secondly we have managed to convince the civil engineer and surveyor David Oliver Moret of our ideas about architecture and project management. David will be taking over the post of technical director and will be directly involved in:

  • Drawing up real estate analyses
  • Supervising draughtsmen
  • Evaluating new procedures
  • Managing quality and building processes

ICAZAR July 2012

ICAZAR.architects – We’re getting going!
2012 – New year, new luck? As Confucius once said: “They who would be constant in happiness and wisdom must often change.”
The courageous creation of the second pillar in these stormy times – ICAZAR.architects – was crowned with success in the first half of 2012. In the South-West of the island, we managed to win various contracts; from a new construction and a redevelopment to a partial redevelopment, followed by interior design and the subsequent interior decoration.


Mallorca is HOT!

Casa en España / 2 / Summer 2012

She had never been on Mallorca. The island gave her visions of drunken tourists drifting down the boulevard, loud music and long beaches full with hysterical young people. A beautiful island? She couldn’t believe that until she flew over to the island. Wanda Saalberg connects her own fascination for Mallorca with the islands rising popularity under North-Europeans.

Local Heros

PRINZ TOP GUIDE Mallorca 2011

ANDO SCHIRMER, 36, architect, builder of modern Fincas for society
Why is Mallorca your new love? Mallorca’s attraction is based on its high standard of living. This boosts the building industry and therefore is good for me as a businessman. The balance between work and spare time is what I am particularly taken with. In my spare time I work out nearly every day. The island offers everything I need to go cycling, jogging and swimming – with its mild temperatures all year round, absolutely ideal conditions in fact. And the most beautiful thing about all this: the sea is all around you, filling the air with its healthy influence.


Less is More

Wohn!Design, Ausgabe 4, 2011

Mallorca’s holiday cottages are not exactly known for their architectonic finesse. At the same time, building plots in top spots have become hard to find. In the popular south-eastern part of the island, for instance, there are only ten plots left, and Ando Schirmer, the Managing Director of Icazar.development, bagged three of them. Steering clear of the island’s typical faux Finca fare, he builds holiday properties in prime locations that stun people with their captivating architecture and sensitive interior design. Great names and brands characterise the interior decoration, where furniture by Jean Prouvé, Patricia Urquiola and Paola Navone blends with objets trouvés from Balearic studios that the passionate collector frequents on this quest for the perfect final touch. “We are simply very good, even when it comes to planning detailed solutions.” And since it has been a one-stop shop for planning and supervision anyway, the company now offers its services as an architectural firm as well: Good for Mallorca!
