The Nieuw and Ibiza Interiors Go Off the Grid to Create an Island Paradise

Who hasn’t entertained the fantasy of going off the grid and dropping everything to run off to an island somewhere in the Mediterranean or the tropics? Interior architect Jurjen van Hulzen of Amsterdam-based The Nieuw actually did it, however: He transformed a 100-year-old dilapidated warehouse on Ibiza into a loft-style getaway.

After gutting most of the original structure, van Hulzen created an open space with south views of the valley for socializing; two bedrooms on the darker, cooler north side; and a yoga platform on the roof, with interior beams made of the local Sabina tree. Walls are chalk and mud-plastered stone, which offer a rough contrast to the polished concrete floors and powder-coated steel frames on the ample windows and doors. In collaboration with Ibiza Interiors, he reinterpreted the traditional Spanish floor in herringbone patterns of terra cotta for the bathroom.

Best of all, the Campo Loft is literally off the grid, with a private well for water and solar panels powering hot water, floor heating, and electricity—making this home away from home entirely self-sufficient.

Baths and sinks are from Not Only White, with fittings by Piet Boon for Cocoon. Photography courtesy of On a Hazy Morning.

(May we suggest Down Pipe?) After duking it out with two coats of primer and Frog Tape, you might be sick of seeing that color and breathing those fumes—but definitely save it! Wipe away the excess, tap the lid back on to seal, and put it somewhere you’ll actually be forced to deal with it another day (that is, somewhere you can see it). When you’re ready start a small-scale paint project—starting with one of these 15 we’ve turned to time and again.
