Villa Mediterráneo en Ibiza
2013 - 2014
The objective of integrating Mediterranean culture into the natural environment of high landscape quality leads to an organic project, which inherits from the local construction tradition the organization around a patio, which disappears between curved, capricious but accurate volumes looking for good views, privacy or relationships between spaces.
Reinforced concrete, with brutalist finish, with very marked wooden formwork, adapts to the natural forms of the different bodies, generating curved walls in plan, and even in elevation, on which they support solid slabs, in a succession of levels in cascade, following the slopes of the steep plot. The upper level, with a floor slab that folds and rises to also configure the deck, must resolve a large cantilever, with load of a green roof. In addition, the wide window of sliding sheets must be embedded, whereby the roof slab undergoes a cut on its underside which greatly hinders the mobilization of the compressed lower block at the start of the overhang. That is why a grid of beams is designed to allow the cantilever to be suspended, with the edges hidden in the thickness of the roof.
Circular metallic supports together with oblique elevated walls transfer the loads of the different platforms towards the foundation, seeking the balance with the parts flown to optimize the global behaviour.
