Ibiza as an exotic party destination needs no introduction. From celebs to Europe-trotting enthusiasts pretty much everybody who is somebody eventually finds their way to this picturesque island where the nightlife seems to extend well beyond dawn!
Nestled in a quiet little neighborhood of Germany this timber-clad home of a local dairy farmer was revamped by adding a dashing modern structure that bridges the gap between the interior and the outdoors. Designed by Woltereck Fitzner Architekten Bda the pavilion-style extension gives the classic home a modern escape!
This was accomplished by keeping the structure of the home simple and minimal. It is the wooden ceiling and the concrete floor that act as two simple planes that define the residence with the glass walls creating flexible boundaries between the interior and the garden outside. The interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces is seamless and one feels as if surrounded by the lovely garden while sitting in the living area or the family room.

Despite its contemporary appeal great care was taken during the construction of the house to ensure that it fit in with the landscape and its natural beauty. Elements such as natural stone and cement blocks only help in accentuating this connection between the modern and the traditional local architectural elements to offer the best of both worlds.
