Andres Jaque Architects: House in Never Never Land, Ibiza - Complete

For their design they made four major decisions; to minimize tree and shrub removal or pruning on the allotment, raise more than 80% of the building mass on piles to avoid any sort of disturbance on the ground(paving, crops, watering or other input) which might eventually alter its properties, cluster all the waste filtering and treatment equipment and compensate for the amount of substrate affected by the foundation by including an equivalent mass of substrate in various parts of the skin around the buildings, mixed with a water-retaining gelatin to reproduce the moister of original soil in shallower conditions.
