Class listed monument: Can Lis at the coast near Portopetro
Before we already have reported on Jorn Utzorn and his masterpiece of home décor “Can Lis” at the coast near Portopetro. Now the council of Majorca decided to give the architecturally outstanding building the status of a “Bien de Interés cultural (BIC)”, a class listed monument. Thus the chalet, Utzorns former home in Majorca, which features by it’s local materials and the harmony combining nature and construction by mutual encouragement, will be protected and conserved for coming generations.
Last year the house, visible from the sea side, has been restored and preserved by the architect Lise Juel. Due to the Danish Utzorn foundation, Can Lis near Portopetro has been converted into a seminar- and meeting point for architects and students.
Among lots of significant buildings all over the world, Jorn Utzorn created the opera of Sydney.
