A total transformation from an old abandoned warehouse to a dreamy loft on the island of Ibiza. On a remote mountain field in the rugged north of Ibiza lies this beautiful island home. What formerly served as a workshop and storage, has now been turned into a contemporary dream house. The owner of Ibiza Interiors and the Nieuw developed this 100 year old warehouse into a design guesthouse and showcase project.
When interior architect Jurjen van Hulzen saw the structure and location of the building, the concept for the design was born. Concrete columns and steel beams were carrying a typical Ibizan ‘sabina beam’ roof. A mix of the industrial structure combined with the rustic roof formed the concept for the rest of the design: an interesting play and contrast between rustic and industrial. That’s also how it’s got the name ‘Campo Loft’, which basically means ‘industrial open living space on the field’.
The beautiful traditional building structure has been preserved to keep the character of the typical Ibizan architecture. Basic and local materials have been used; a concrete floor, chalk and mud plastered stone walls and ‘sabina beams’ made from trees that only grow on the island. A new material that has been incorporated into the house is steel. A powdercoated steel is used for the window frames and doors, and there’s a custom made raw steel kitchen.
The result is a fantastic contemporary natural residence where contrast plays a big role; old and new, sleek and rustic, light and dark, rough and soft. At the same time there’s a certain balance as well, and everywhere you look something is happening. With an incredible view from the mountain, a yoga platform on the roof and many fruit trees and a vegetable garden, this is truly a piece of paradise. The Campo Loft is now being used as a showcase project and guesthouse. A unique place to relax and unwind, designed by and for design lovers.
