In the center of the Spanish island of Ibiza, a sublimely proportioned house replete with outdoor arcades and double-height porticos enchants the viewer.

Blacam and Meagher Architects designed it on a completely modular grid, both in plan and in section, juxtaposing cubes and spaces throughout.

This modular grid extends throughout the interior spaces as well, both vertically and horizontally.

The contemporary beauty graces Ibiza’s Morna Valley, a region that in ancient times was terraced for growing crops.

There is an undeniable grandeur matching the vast silence of the surrounding forested hills.

Perfectly proportioned within the portico columns, glass boxes encase a single light bulb.

Because of this elegantly witty touch, the spaces created are sweet and charming, despite the grand proportions.

In fact, the architects were responsible for all the furniture and fittings, including lighting, making for a cohesive experience.

The construction is all of local limestone, using traditional methods, plastering it over concrete blocks.

The luxury property also includes a number of small residential annexes for guests.

Cross ventilation is utilized throughout the basically simple structures, obviating the need for mechanical air conditioning.

Rain water is collected on the flat roof tops and stored in a centralised tank to be recycled, as traditionally done for this kind of payesa.

Outdoor showers complete the sustainable picture in a very delightful retreat.

And its ancient surrounding terraces contained by local stone walls now grow herbs and olives within its garden.
