Design notes

 

A place to live, a beam of light, a flash from the sea.

 

Make a place, Haz Eivissa, in one of the locations furthest from the centre. Make it sustainable.

 

Make it, build it, use our experience. Let’s follow in the steps of IBAVI on Formentera, which builds with respect.

 

Respect for the environment, local knowledge and technology that aims to make the world a better place.

 

We gather testimony, continue the experience, go deeper into the building elements and pursue new limits.

 

We take advantage of this privileged land, surrounded by the sea, to build the best possible habitat – both accessible and universal.

 

Looking out on to the sea, in the shade, delighting in the breeze that flows through the dwelling.

 

And making use of roots, what comes from them and connects us with the past and the rural environment.

 

Green and shade once again, and in spring, almond tree blossom.

 

Quality of life; let’s protect it. With the resources that are available, let’s hit the highest possible heights.
