Centuries-old stable is converted into a self-sustaining dream home

Comments Off on Centuries-old stable is converted into a self-sustaining dream home

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. Related: Old horse stable transformed into a chic art studio and guesthouse 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.” + Standard Studio + Ibiza Interiors Images via Standard Studio and Ibiza Interiors
