A timeless tale of two sides
Salt. Sea air. The dazzling Ibizan sun. The elements had left their mark on Casa Lodo over the centuries. This former fisherman’s house started life as simple, modest dwellings and ended as a partial ruin. It was a story that longed to be rewritten – to recreate what might have been, transform the neglected into the nurtured and breathe new life into this building’s history.
Delving into the island’s rich history, the beauty of the town and rugged landscape, the location informed every element of this project. Perched on a cliff, Casa Lodo is a tale of two sides. One faces the ink-blue seas to Formentera. The other looks over Eivissa Old Town. We translated both aspects into the vernacular architectural language that became the heart and soul of the project. The living areas frame views of boats weaving their way in and out of the harbour, as they have always done. While outdoors, the rooftop terrace and summer kitchen have wraparound ocean vistas.
Sustainable materials & authentic detailing pay homage to the buildings’ past as a fisherman’s house.
This enduring relationship with land and sea flows seamlessly across Casa Lodo. Inside and out, natural, sustainable materials and authentic detailing pay homage to the buildings’ past. Preserved and refurbished original stone walls now sit alongside newly fitted traditional Ibicenco features, and bespoke furnishings that draw on the talents of local, artisan craftsmanship. In-keeping with Casa Lodo’s tailor-made spirit, are one-off pieces from the Pirajean Lees furniture collection. From the interior details to the external architecture, Casa Lodo is where time-worn beauty finds its own natural expression, in a unique and comfortable home.
