A house is built to create the best possible setting for our life and work as human beings. It offers refuge, protection from the elements and a place of community and creativity.
Building is always also an intervention in nature. For this reason, we begin every project by looking at the place and its environment with an open mind. In our properties, we seek to create a connection between the people who live there and the surrounding natural world.
Our luxury is the time and care we take to consider every detail.
To us, luxury means reduction to what is essential.
Everything else is just bling-bling.
SOY sees itself as an international network of people who – each in their own sphere – take on their tasks, fill our projects with life and propel them forward with their blood, sweat and passion. What connects us is our dedication to holistically conceived, ecologically sustainable architecture, mutual appreciation and respect.
The initiator and driving force of SOY is Alexandra Schmitz, who, as managing partner, sits at the nodal point of all our activities. Even after nearly 20 years as an architect, she hasn’t lost an ounce of her enthusiasm. Quite the opposite. With each SOY project, she explores new avenues by which to contribute to shaping our future – step by step, in a continual learning process, with an entrepreneurial spirit, responsibility and (just a little bit of) respect.
We comprehensively steward each of our projects – from the initial idea on viewing a new parcel of land, right through to the sale of the property. We constantly strive to develop properties that are custom-tailored to their location, embody the highest architectural standards and intervene only minimally in nature. What’s more: right from the outset, we make nature an essential component of every project.
For us, sustainability isn’t a buzzword. It’s what drives us above all else.
We like to talk. More than that, we love to do.

We are really happy that our Casa Xaloc project was mentioned in a "fresh off the press" article in "Diario de Mallorca" about OHLAB's sustainable passive house projects.
What a great evening it was - it was an honour to be there. The renowned Mallorquin family business Alibaz construcción celebrated its 20th anniversary in Calvià and invited three generations of architects to present their views on “living in the future”. For our contribution, OHLAB, Paloma and Jaime presented Casa Xaloc as an example of a passive or even zero energy house, with the prospect of constructing buildings that produce more energy than they use themselves. Documentation on the wonderful evening can be found here.
Proud to share with you that our first project, Casa Xaloc in Son Vida, Palma de Mallorca, has made its way onto https://www.world-architects.com/de/projects/view/casa-xaloc .
It just feels good to have such great partners and companions as we have with OHLAB. The internationally renowned architects office, who are realising our first project in Son Vida, Palma de Mallorca, are now presenting their work on the international platform world architects.
Amazing Feature about Palma's charme.
This video demonstrates, why we as Soy admire Palma and Mallorca so much. Young, creative, innovative companies in Palma. Founders and entrepreneurs who are making Palma so vivid.
A gated community with 24 hour security in a wonderful setting, offering three golf courses, a 10 minute drive to Palma's old town, 15 minutes to Palma airport and international schools.
One of the last free plots in the centre of Soller's charming old town, only 3 minutes from the idyllic marketplace with its lively restaurants and cafes, yet quietly situated.
