Perched on a mountain in the north of Ibiza, the white modern home retains traces of the original stable including the ‘sabina beams’ and ancient stonewalls. Since the stable was seriously deteriorated, the architects could only salvage the walls and parts of the roof. To respect the local vernacular, only materials with a history of use on the island were added to the redesign, such as the iroko window frames and white chalk-plastered stonewalls.

The contemporary and luxurious interior is decorated with boutique designer items, including the Coco-mat beds and Modern Vintage furniture and lighting. The off-grid abode is powered entirely by solar energy and water is pumped in from a private well. “The result is a fantastic contemporary residence where contrast plays a big role; old and new, sleek and rustic, light and dark,” write the architects. “At the same time there’s a certain balance as well, and everywhere you look something is happening. With an incredible view from the mountain, a yoga platform above the house and many fruit trees and a vegetable garden, this is truly a piece of paradise.”
