can frit · ibiza

Can Frit is a miracle! We refurbished this quite atypical fan-shaped peasant house –probably due to the topography–, with great heights and strange proportions.

We had to put pressure on this project as the license had be granted years before and, due to Kafkaesque regulations, it could not be presented again. This is Ibiza!

Everything in this peasant house revolves around a spacious hall with an unexpected beaux arts scheme that forced us to ‘recycle’ the inherited license.

As if an apartment in the 1870’s Paris, the flow is structured around this central space, which is oversized and lacks a specific purpose. The entrance door, the window leading to the southern terraces, the living room and the main room converge there.

Two circles oppose each other in a powerful unplanned diagonal. The classic black sheet metal fireplace from the 70s is suspended above the ground; at the other end, a bold white sheet tambour sits on the pavement, thus announcing the spiral staircase that connects to the lower floor.

That wide hybrid space may be a little strange, but it is the soul of the house, and it works well. The architectural experience that sprouts form it is built on the abrupt, unannounced transition from white, diaphanous spaces –neutral and abstract, too – to ocher, dense rooms built in dry stone with old juniper beams.
