Gent-based design studio Juma Architects have completed the Dupli Dos project. Completed in 2012, the luxury home comes with stunning sea views of the Mediterranean in Ibiza, Balearic Islands.
According to the architects: “The house was not only designed to house eight to 10 people but most of all to create a comfortable contemporary Spanish house for two persons.
“That is why you can close off two bedrooms on the first floor. When there are only two people staying at the property, they can use the whole first floor of the building as one apartment. That rooms are en-suite. When there are more rooms used, there is a big removable wall in the master bedroom to separate the room from the hallway.
“There are two luxury swimming pools. The stairs used to be outside, by moving them indoors and to the back of the house we have managed to create a big space in front of the house.
“One of the houses lays a little bit lower than the other. We think that was something positive because we took advantage of that by creating different zones on the terrace, but also inside. For example: kitchen and living room. The wooden construction (terrace) together with the porches in steel merge the two buildings and make them look one contemporary Spanish house. We also opened up the wall inside the house. By creating a fire place that can be seen and used in both rooms, on both sides, it helps to create more space.”
