Located in the north of Ibiza, Standard Studio revamped a project called Ibiza Campo House, a self-sufficient house among pine trees and cacti with a 45 m² floor area. The house is also a showroom for Ibiza Interiors, a creative company that deals with architecture, interior design, styling, and photography.
The Amsterdam-based Standaard Studio is responsible for the beautiful white house of Ibiza Interiors. In addition to a spacious kitchen and living room, the house has two bedrooms and a bathroom.
All furniture and decorations in the house can be bought in the Ibiza Interiors shop. The house is also a good example of sustainable living, as the electricity and underfloor heating work through the solar panels on the roof. A private well near the house provides the villa with water.
The fact that a house can consist of opposites and can combine different eras is clearly visible at Ibiza Campo House by Standard Studio. The original features of the property have been preserved, such as the 200-year-old beams made from native Sabine pine trees.
The outer walls of concrete are painted with white chalk paint, as can often be seen with the houses in Ibiza. In this way, the walls reflect the sunlight so that the heat is not absorbed as quickly.
There is also a vegetable and fruit garden so that residents can also provide themselves with their own food. The interior is also a combination of old and new.
For example, the old beams are combined with modern furniture and works of art. In the kitchen, you can see how the stone interior walls go well with a sleek kitchen unit.
Two concrete wall leads from the living spaces to the kitchen, where a marble counter sits on dark cabinets. Splendid craftsmanship by locals adds shading to the space.
Encircled by pine trees and desert flora, a pool, yoga platform, and a leafy food garden the clients are given the essential conveniences to live off-the-grid in the mountains.
The Ibiza Campo House is the balanced example of an old characteristic house that can go with modern gadgets to a more sustainable era.
