House in Never Never Land

The young Madrid based architect Andrés Jaque has designed the House in Never-Never Land, the project cascades down a 1300 m2 sloping plot in Ibiza.

The area where this house is placed is a picturesque natural hill far from the island’s major tourist attractions.

The idea of the project is based on three main concepts: integration with the natural surroundings, incorporation of desire society, and getting financial security for the future.

The architect’s primary aim was to adapt the geometry of the house to the existing vegetation and to carve out the construction in the open spaces between the trees and bushes, even to the extent of incorporating trees at certain points.

The house opens up completely to its environment in a typically Mediterranean lifestyle where areas such as the terrace or the pool become hubs of activity.

The search for desire is based on the way Andrés Jaque has imagined different possible everyday situations in the house.

In the current economic climate, buying property is seen as a way of guaranteeing one’s future financial security – a sort of investment fund that grows in value with every passing year.

With this in mind, the architect designed an ensemble of three distinct elements: a main house, plus two independent cabins that could be rented out in the future.

The slope of the land ensures that each unit enjoys an unimpeded view of the sea and its own piece of garden.

The motivation behind the House in Never-Never Land is to create an environmentally responsible project that respects the beauty and biodiversity of the valley, to provide a means of financial security for the owner, and to construct a space for possibilities and desires, related to the traditions of the island.
