The international community that calls Ibiza it’s home (or at least its favourite holiday destination!) gives a cosmopolitan mix of different cultures and styles to the tiny island – making it a hub of creativity, and that extends further than just music and fashion… If you’re looking for some architectural or interior design inspiration from the White Isle, check out these few Modern Ibizan achievements.

By: Standard Studio, Netherlands
Where: San Lorenzo, North
About: What was formally an old stable and storage space has been revamped into a light, bright, and airy self-sufficient studio apartment. Without ruining the original charm and character of the property, Standard Studio’s new venture, Ibiza Interiors, has modernised the little miniature Finca transforming it into a state-of-the-art home with all modern conveniences. A small yet amazingly well-designed space now appears wide and spacious because each element of the design has been carefully considered with functionality at its forefront.

Where: Near to Jesus, South
About: Probably the most iconic architects on the island, the Blakstad’s family’s style is synonymous with Ibiza home design. Masters in modernising the traditional Ibizan farmhouses, whilst still maintaining homage to the local culture and history – the Finca Can Olive, with its spectacular views and eye for typically Ibicenco details, doesn’t let you down.
Where: Es Cubells, South West
About: Standing out from the classic white Ibizan Finca, local Architects, Mixis’ have made the most of the rare bit of privacy provided by the forest that surrounds this villa, to create a texture-inspired distinctive design. An experimentation in contrast, modern glass and industrial design styles mix with the natural materials (both from the surrounding forest and used within the building itself) to play with shadows and reflections, as a threshold between the real and the abstract.
