Terravita Ibiza Landscape Design Architecture Can Mar Terrace Pool

Can Mar

A beautiful & light-filled contemporary space for outdoor living at its finest.

Our brief was to maximise this modern home's challenging outdoor area into a stylish space which our clients could enjoy year round, with an updated pool, yoga deck, dining, cooking and relaxed seating areas.

Drawing inspiration from the landscape

One of our goals was to make the boundary of the property feel blended with the forest and sea. The property backs onto a beautiful forest, so we took inspiration from the pine trees and native greenery and threaded this throughout the plot. Using the new planting, we were able to create not only an improved lush and greener view from the house’s interior, but also to offset the its white, architectural lines when viewed from the exterior.

Creating the illusion of space

Wood was utilised as much as possible as it works well with the house’s interior. Hardwood slats were used on the existing boundary walls with climbers to soften the look. These sections of timber fencing were dispersed with large, leafy green cypress trees to create a natural privacy screen. We used bamboo timber for the yoga decking which is very hard-wearing, requires little maintenance and looks divine as it ages. For the kitchen and dining area, we used a coloured micro cement to match the existing tiles on the terrace. This continuation of colour to brings a subtle cohesion and fully maximises the space.

Design solutions

Another important aspect in landscape design is creating sequencing and ensuring there is a natural flow around a property. We brought a fluidity to the space by installing steps and platforms, so that all areas can be accessed easily.

The exterior spaces left over after the house’s construction were narrow and asymmetric, so we worked hard to optimise the feel of the space as much as possible. We employed many little tricks so that each area is unconstrained and cohesive, yet always feels comfortable and relaxed.

A masterclass in relaxed outdoor living where style and function abound. With natural woods, a gentle palette and subtle screening, each area feels intimate yet spacious.

We visually opened up the dining area, which is set within a narrow space and would otherwise have felt slightly isolated, by adding cut outs of varying sizes into the wall, allowing anyone seated at the table to look through to the swimming pool terrace and out onto views of the landscape beyond.

The finished result came together beautifully to create an incredible home that perfectly  complements the clients’ lifestyle.  We are so pleased we had the opportunity to show, by bringing all areas of this home to life, what can be achieved by transforming a challenging space.  Read more about the design solutions and next phase of Can Mar.
