A paradise in the Sun, the country sides of Ibiza are an ideal setting for this private villa and its zest for the finer things in life. Open and unrestrained, yet melding into a gentle expression of individual flair, taste and identity – much like the Mediterranean skies above it – this romantic villa is home to a Dutch family who traded the cold Amsterdam inner city for a warm Spanish embrace. Their home much like their enthusiasm, and the ambience it inhabits, is a warm and delectable mix of the expected and the unexpected, making for some smart spaces and some rather pleasant surprises.
An up and close encounter with the materiality of various structural and visual elements, this design comes bare in its elaborate spectrum of influences and undertones. Instead of matching every aspect into a synergized singular moment, this design explodes its edges and comes clean about its love for both – elegant formality and laid-back kitsch. Each space and frame in this romantic villa is unmistakably unique and invites you to explore and engage with it at different scales and pace.
The gentle color washes and exposed wall surfaces however keep the scheme subtle and utterly contemporary, ensuring it stays far from overwhelming in the realm of the sheer sublime.
