Robb Report Russia features Sabina and Architects in the April edition of Gallery – Latest trends, launches, auctions, concepts and other news.
Over the past five years, Ibiza has settled down and ceased to be associated exclusively with nightlife. On the “swirling” Balearic island in quiet bays with clear water and sandy beaches luxurious villas and boutique hotels have grown.
For those who appreciate the native beauty of Ibiza and dream of finding a second home here, there is eco-village Sabina, a first on the island. Developers Anton Bilton and Glyn Hirsch, who are known in Russia as specialists in warehouse complexes, as well as Augustin Del Pino, who was engaged in the Balearic resort of Cala Conta, redeemed 17 hectares on the west coast of the island near Cala Moli and invited 18 architects and designers from different countries.
The prefix “eco” is not just a tribute to fashion, this project was one of the first in Europe to receive a certificate BREEAM, which means the most careful attitude to resources, both natural and human.
The first part of construction has already been completed. In addition to 13 villas of 510– 960 sq. m (with a terrace, a swimming pool and a stunning view of the Mediterranean Sea), Sabina also has a clubhouse, which is the main centre of attraction on resort.
There is also a restaurant here, led by a team of a well-known institution in Ibiza, La Paloma. There is a spa, kids club, a swimming pool with sea water, tennis courts, amphitheatre for concerts and even a temple for meditation.
The second phase involves the construction of more 11 residences and these will be completed by early 2023. Following this there will be 18 more spacious villas that will be built according to individual new projects. Masters of architecture worked [on the designs] for future owners of the real estate, such as Rolf Blakstad, Jordi Carreño and Jaime Romano from Spain, David Chipperfield from England, American Rick Joy, Mexican Elias Riso, Matteo Thun from Italy and Ami Schmelzman from Israel.
