If we combine the terms Ibiza and residential with John Pawson, anti-opulence and sustainability, things look good.
The British architect tells us about the two villas he has designed at Sabina Estates, a respectful complex with a holistic approach on a 17-hectare estate. They are very much him, understated luxury, with the vernacular brought to his domain.
Although it may seem so, John Pawson is not a hieratic man: little unconscious tics and a great sense of humour break what should be a serene façade.
But his architecture is. A champion of the minimal gesture, of restraint, convinced of constructive and aesthetic austerity, he is considered one of the fathers of architectural minimalism.
