Built on two identical existing structures, these three-storey glass cube Siesta Houses, were redesigned by the Ibiza (Islas Baleares) based Zuccherodesign Architects who took inspiration from the breathtaking sunset of Santa Eulalia bay. In a small densely inhabited island such as Ibiza, it is a challenge to find a hilltop location near the sea that is free from daily tourist activities.

The tranquil feeling of seclusion was the first design objective when positioning the Siesta Houses. The second objective was to bring the feeling of the sea inside the house metaphorically painting the walls with delicate colors to reflect the sunlight. Constructed with open concept interiors (kitchen, dining-room and living-room plus master-suite, all in the main floor) and joining rectilinear forms that seemed to float on a cliff, these spaces feature spectacular views from every vantage point in their interior. A floor-to-ceiling glass wall expands the conceptual impact of the living-room while offering direct access to the open-air terrace which features a hanging-pool. The house entrance is accomplished from a small private street approached from behind and connected by a bridge, allowing total privacy to the inhabitants. In the evening, the home’s slat-style facade allows the interior light to permeate and merge with the exterior lighting system, bathing the house in a dramatic and glowing aura of its own.

Perched above the Mediterranean at the highest elevation between the town of Santa Eulalia and the rest of the island of Ibiza, this expansive villa offers luxurious comforts, essential privacy, and unparalleled views of the sea. Architects at Minimum Arquitectura get credits for sculpting this paradise befitting a celebrity.

The white also acts as a reflective surface for the many sources of light that have been included in the modern design. Not only does sunlight flood in from the floor-to-ceiling windows that face the sea, but a unique skylight crowns the living area’s concrete accent wall, letting sun in from above as well. At night, soft lighting from many hanging fixtures bring necessary visibility without harshness.

No seaside villa would be complete with many places to entertain and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the island. The dining area gives way to an infinity-edge pool that makes it feel as though you could swim right into the sea. An outdoor lounge area for pre- and après-swim socializing is the final indulgent touch.
