Architects
& Designers

For the first time, an eclectic mix of the world’s most renowned architects and designers collaborate to create a secure, private villa community on the island of Ibiza.

 

Ibiza is a melting pot of nationalities and eclectic, highly individual styles and we wanted to mirror that diversity in our design concept. Therefore, it was important for us to choose architects for their differences rather than their similarities.  We also chose those whose work we felt would enhance the surrounding landscape, as it is paramount that their designs blend with Ibiza’s natural beauty. We chose only the very best, those whose designs had inspired us, from all over the world.  Having such a variety of taste and design in the villas is unprecedented – there is no other scheme like this anywhere in the world.

“Our creative process is expressed by minimalism and simplicity but always with depth and attention to details, materials and craftsmanship.”

“In many ways, my work is about small, simple pleasures — the way the light falls across an area of wall at a particular time of day, the quiet rhythm of an internal vista, the subtle texture of a stone surface.”
