About Ibiza Campo – Loft

Reviving Ibiza’s Hidden Gem

Ibiza Interiors and Nieuw have brilliantly transformed a century-old warehouse into Ibiza Campo – Loft, a modern design marvel. Nestled in Ibiza’s rugged northern mountains, this former workshop now stands as a contemporary dream house. Interior architect Jurjen van Hulzen, inspired by the building’s structure and location, crafted a unique design concept. He seamlessly blended industrial elements with rustic charm, coining the term ‘Campo Loft’ – an industrial open living space amidst nature.

Blending Tradition with Modernity

Preserving the building’s traditional Ibizan architecture was crucial. The team utilized basic, local materials like concrete, chalk, mud-plastered stone walls, and ‘sabina beams’ – only found on the island. Incorporating steel added a modern twist, with powder-coated steel for window frames and doors and a custom raw steel kitchen.

The loft’s renovation journey started from a dilapidated state, with only the walls and parts of the roof salvageable. Lacking essential utilities, the architects ingeniously added electricity, water, and sewage systems. The loft now boasts self-sufficiency, relying on a private well and solar panels for essential services, thus operating independently of the grid.

A Masterful Design with Sustainable Luxury

Van Hulzen’s thoughtful design includes a spacious open area on the south side, offering panoramic valley views and leading to a large private terrace. The north side houses two bedrooms, strategically placed for cool, dark retreats. A unique dining space with a built-in bench and roof light integrates seamlessly into the loft. The bathroom, featuring a freestanding bath and herringbone patterned terra cotta tile floors, offers a modern twist on traditional Spanish design.

This loft is more than a house; it’s a comfortable, modern space with a high-end, natural character. Collaborations with Coco-mat for 100% natural beds, The Modern in Amsterdam for furniture, and Eginstill for the urban steel kitchen island highlight its luxurious appeal. Art from Vroom & Varossieau and bathroom fixtures designed by Piet Boon for Cocoon add to its refined aesthetics.

The result? A breathtaking, contemporary residence where contrasts enhance beauty. Old meets new, sleek pairs with rustic, and light balances dark in this self-sustainable paradise. The Campo Loft, now a showcase project and guesthouse, offers a unique experience for relaxation and design appreciation.
