Standard Studio Converts 200 Year Old Ibiza Cottage Into a Private Home and Exhibition

By • Mar 2, 2017

Studio Standard, based in Amsterdam, has transformed a 45 m2 stable located on the island of Ibiza, Spain, into a private home and exhibition hall for an interior design shop. All furniture and decorative pieces that adorn the home – two bedrooms, one bathroom, kitchen, and living/dining room – are available in the store. A wonderful idea, isn’t it? It definitely is.

Located amongst the mountains of this beautiful Balearic Island, and with a design that is perfectly in line with its location, this little house could not be cozier.

The ceiling is lined with old wooden beams that run the length of the rooms. Made with Sabina pine trunks, a native tree from the island, these striking beams are 200 years old – a fascinating fact, isn’t it?

These beams not only give an aged quality to the house, but also add a rustic and warm touch to the décor. They contrast beautifully with the completely white walls and with niches where decorative ornaments that we can find at the store are strategically placed.

In another space we find the modern kitchen, made in black, against a beautiful stone wall that makes a striking contrast between the contemporary and the rustic.

In the bathroom, as in the kitchen, the most outstanding feature is the contrast created by the modern pieces in front of the rustic stone walls.
