Modern Home in 17th Century Spanish Mill

I find it impossible not to gasp when I look at these photos - or sigh longingly.  Architect (and owner) Durval Dias has created a sleek and stylish home in a 17th-century olive mill in the Balearic Islands of Spain.  I love how he chose which elements of the building to highlight - framing them with the smooth white walls like artwork.  Then there is the light... the light!  Putting huge modern windows into the arches, installing the polished concrete floors, and painting out the ceiling beams white let that lovely natural light pour in and bounce around.  And the Hans Wegner chairs covered in cow hide?  Words are not adequate...
