This project focused on restoring and extending a traditional Ibizan house in Sa Rota de Can Sergent.

We used the opportunity to reflect on a style of architecture that reinterprets Ibiza’s traditional constructions while avoiding interventions that would become a clichéd copy and a pseudo-rustic version of the original.

The extension was based on creating a continuation of the existing dwelling, as a clear and well defined wing to which a wooden colonnade is added as a veranda and element of shade.

 

A space in the style of a Roman impluvium reveals the existing building while providing a reception area and hallway for the end building.

The design features key elements of Ibiza’s much admired and widely studied vernacular architecture, which include a careful consideration of the language and proportion of spaces, vertical walls set into a slope, and the sequence of hollow and solid elements.

Outside spaces are designed in harmony with the setting and based on sustainability criteria.

 

This project was carried out within deBM Arquitectura y Paisajismo.
