Project Ibiza stable
10 August, 2017
Amsterdam-based Standard Studio has transformed a stable into an off-grid showroom and home for the owners of an interior design shop in Ibiza.
Nestled within the mountains at the north of the Balearic island, the 45-square-metre house named Casa Campo comprises two bedrooms and one bathroom.
The cottage doubles up as a showroom, with items of furniture and decorative pieces available to buy from the client's shop, Ibiza Interiors.
Described by Standard Studio as a "self-sustainable house", the electricity and underfloor heating is powered by solar panels located on the roof,
while a private well supplies the cottage with water.
Exterior walls made from concrete are painted with white chalk paint, a typical method used on Ibizan houses to reflect the sun.
"The result is a fantastic contemporary residence where contrast plays a big role; old and new, sleek and rustic, light and dark," said the studio.
"At the same time there’s a certain balance as well, and everywhere you look something is happening."
