To minimize the impact of the building to the site — it’s a hybrid structure made entirely of wood with some steel and very little concrete — the architects also ensured that the house is completely off the grid. Which is why independent sources of heat and electricity were added.
Sustainable design and green home architecture are much more than a mere compilation of the latest smart home technology that saves up on energy. Design planning and the overall silhouette of the house also play a pivotal role in shaping the power and resource consumption of the structure.
The villa itself features a blend of the classic Mediterranean style and modern minimalism by bringing together contrasting materials such as concrete stone wood and glass. Just a stone’s throw away from the best beaches on the island Can Schlacher is all about with the charming Ibiza lifestyle!
Built on a budget of the modern residence is spread across two different levels with each floor adapting to the various uses of the homeowners with ease. The street façade of the house offers ample privacy while the Finnish wood panels lend a sense of inviting warmth.
A small balcony connected to the living area ensures that the interior is both airy and spacious in its appeal. Large glass windows and a steel frame also bring a touch of industrial style indoors while the rest of the home takes on a more modern look.
The stylish private residence was built around an extensive garden where a giant remains untouched and the focal point is the vast outdoors. Creating a seamless transition between the indoors and the lovely garden and deck space outside the house encourages its residents to spend more time outside than indoors!
Privacy was a key issue in shaping the overall contours of the house as the homeowners wanted a beautiful family house that kept away any prying eyes while letting in ample natural ventilation. A smart combination of skylights sliding screens with wooden slats and upper level windows were used to accomplish this task.
