The beautiful Ibiza island is a wonderful tourist destination but also a really cool place to live in. The houses here are almost always open to the outdoors and optimized to take advantage of the magnificent views of the Mediterranean Sea. One of them is the Alegre House which in 2014 was renovated by architect Jorge Vidal. The main concrete shell was already in place but the house lacked a lot of the features that today allow it to share a connection with its surroundings and to offer a truly immersive living experience.
One of the major goals of this renovation was to open up the interior and to invite the beautiful views, sunlight and fresh air inside the house. The mission was entirely successful. A large open patio is adjacent to the lounge and dining areas on the ground floor, allowing these to be seamlessly extended outside. The transition is very smooth thanks to the sliding glass walls and the way in which the layout and everything else was planned. The ground floor is also fully open on the opposite side where it leads onto a beautiful terrace and swimming pool area.
The gorgeous upstairs area has a charm of its own. A long wraparound terrace with transparent glass railings helps to bridge the gap between the interior spaces and the mesmerizing landscape that surround them. The master suite in particular takes great advantage of this connection.
As far as the interior design and decor are concerned, it’s easy to see an inclination towards natural materials and textures as well as towards warm neutral colors combined with fresh tones of green and turquoise inspired by the tropical and vibrant scenery. The house as a whole is very breezy and inviting thanks to the overall simplicity of its design but also the wonderful attention to detail that went into its renovation.
