They ask us to reproduce an old Ibizan farm. It does not seem like a correct approach, but we do not want to impose modernity.

Faced with a size that lends itself and invites us to work on abstract and functional volumes, we propose to move away from the domestic Ibizan architecture model and recover elements of… ecclesiastical: primary geometry, thick wall.

After a study on the churches of Ibiza, we declined: wide and low retaining walls, which blend in with the landscape; volumes that take advantage of topographic unevenness, silhouettes. And it is true that from Cala Salada, the house, despite the forcefulness of its volume, cannot be seen.

Es Puig d’en Tries is rustic architecture, combines its sobriety without losing the beauty of the traditional. They say there are 2 houses; because the social spaces are erected more on a larger and abstract scale while the bedroom area retains more human proportions.

But in addition, its functional distribution is different from the Mediterranean one of organizing the spaces around a patio. the patios and galleries accompany the rooms that follow one another in line, looking for the sea as an interlocutor. The spaces are not continuous, its location follows the strategy of views, of the steep coasts that creep into the last corner.

Es Puig d’en Tries is an exercise in how to be inspired, conserve and re-give character to elements of traditional architecture… and avoid pastiche.
