A total transformation from an old abandoned storage shed to a dreamy contemporary home on the island of Ibiza pays homage to its rustic beginnings while providing all the modern luxuries we now expect in a getaway home. Tactile concrete floors, plastered walls and old beamed ceilings are juxtaposed with sleek glass and steel. Designed by Jurjen van Hulzen of The Nieuw and Ibiza Interiors the house sits in a beautiful wild flower field on a remote hillside and is all about balance. Balance between old and new, rough and smooth, light and dark, luxe and rustic, the frantic world out there and the escape within.

“On one of the largest single residential sites in this bayside suburb, this project sought to restore and rehabilitate an expansive single level dwelling in a generous garden as well as provide additional accommodation. The high level heritage status of the existing house and the visibility afforded by a corner site prompted us to design a sober and refined pavilion, sited to preserve the large swathe of garden and clad in weathered copper shingles and bronze shutters to reference both the hawthorn bricks and slate roof of the existing dwelling. “
Love the restrained interiors. Love the lush garden (by Eckersley Design). Love the connections between the two. Love the separation of public and private spaces and the luxurious material palette. Bayside Manse by Melbourne-based architects Kennedy Nolan.
It’s hard to believe but this house in Girona, Spain was built in 2009. Ten years on the design is as fresh and stylish as ever. I must admit as much as I love the interiors that vegetable patch and all the stone walls is so inspiring. By Barcelona-based GCA Architects.
