This house takes its inspiration from Ibizan and Mexican houses, which have in common their powerful materiality, rooted in natural materials such as adobe, ceramics and lime. Imperfect sculptures, proud to show the imprint of the hand that sculpted them.

As in Ibizan houses, the rooms are juxtaposed one against the other as independent modules, keeping proportions, organised around a central courtyard with an olive tree. However, the roof is kept at the same height to make the project cheaper and, for the same reason, we used a standard construction system.

However, its surfaces are covered with lime, hand-crafted in the same way as in Ibizan houses. The corners are rounded, the chimney and furniture are moulded, the niches are dug out as if they were thick adobe walls. The floor is covered with ceramic tiles and the ceilings with exposed wooden beams, in the style of the sabina beams of Ibizan houses.

The terraces extend under the same solid roof, forming part of the volume of the house, but one of the modules of the house is separated to form a separate cellar space. Both constructions, like Ibizan houses, are surrounded by gravel, orchards and fruit trees.
