Architects: de Blacam and Meaguer architects Location: Atzaró, Ibiza, Spain Design Team: John Meagher, Juan Echeverría Project Year: 2011 Photographs: Peter Cook Project Area: 480.0 sqm Builder: Construcciones Collado Ballesteros, SL The house is on a north-west facing slope facing into the Atzaro Valley and the settlements of San Lorenzo and Balafia. This is a one-storey dwelling, based on a 3.8m grid, with a L-shaped layout that embraces a swimming pool and a three-bay pergola. A sequence of cubes and porticos with different heights are adapted to the sloping topography. Its architecture echoes the Ibizan old fincas surrounded by dry stone walls that terrace the surrounding landscape. The Iroko external doors and windows, the reddish fertile soil,and the ceramic vaulted blocks contrast with the white stucco walls and the greenery of the vegetation.
