never-never-land-house1

The Never Never Land House looks a little like a living room fort a kid might erect from couch cushions and empty cardboard boxes. The playful Ibiza residence was designed by Andrés Jaque Arquitectos to contend with a sloping lot and a desire to leave intact as much shrubbery and local vegetation as possible. Water and waste filtering equipment was relocated from the bottom of the house, most of which was built atop concrete piles, to reinforced “clusters” that will prevent any impact on the Cala Vadella valley. The home’s swimming pool makes a direct connection to the horizon and the use of glass gives owners a transparent mirror to the sky and the dramatic home’s dynamic setting.
