When Jurjen van Hulzen bought an abandoned workshop and storage space on the island of Ibiza, Spain, it was little more than a rundown building with no plumbing and electricity. Now, the structure, called Ibiza Campo Loft, is a sleek vacation home that overlooks the island’s rocky hills.
The designer renovated the traditional “sabina beam” ceiling with wood from trees on the island, which gives the otherwise stark home a warm touch. Concrete floors stretch across the house, powder-coated steel frames the windows, and mud and chalk plastered walls make the house feel like a cross between an industrial loft and cozy cabin.
To make the structure habitable, Van Hulzen had to install plumbing, sewage, and a well. All of the electricity for hot water, floor heating, and appliances come from solar panels.
The resulting renovation strikes a balance between modern and rustic, luxurious and and simple. With features like a rooftop yoga platform and multiple outdoor gathering spaces, we can confidently say this would be a pretty good place to pass some much needed down time.
