Text description provided by the architects. Ending all types of conflict - the architect draws a clear line – a link – between the sky and the rough stone of the land. Modern and traditional unite. The Ibiza finca displays different hues of white, all contrasting with each other. Its central patio, private garden, is a pivotal point connecting the different parts of the house. This is where you enter, as is the want of tradition.

Fixed windows, with no evident frame, run along the living room. Statues dart forward... they retreat. The barrier separating interior and exterior is no more.

The furniture designed by the architect and the stone features communicate the same savagery. This is their way of resisting the harsh, country environment encircling the house.

The sun penetrates the room, leaving its mark on a plain, sheer, virgin surface. Architecture unveils the mystery of things when it examines the essentials.
