The anchoring concept for architectural and design firm Moredesign is a deep love and respect for the Mediterranean lifestyle, culture and history. Founded in Mallorca by designer Oro de Negro and architect Manuel Villanueva, Moredesign reinterprets Mediterranean style into stunning, contemporary private homes and commercial buildings. Now with an office on the white isle, this dynamic Ibiza architecture firm takes its philosophy across the Balearics and beyond.
The Moredesign portfolio already contains a list of soon-to-be iconic architectural projects in Ibiza. The exquisitely designed beach restaurant, Casa Jondal, on Ibiza’s south coast looks like a private home; the relaxed ambience and colour palette reflects tradition with hints of the sun, sea and sand. On the west coast is the celebrated beach club, El Silencio, another Moredesign project encapsulating the essence of summer. Earthy tones and a feet-in-the-sand vibe echo the carefree island lifestyle. Boutique hotel Casa Pacha, located in Formentera, where the firm was responsible for facades and landscaping, contains a notable elegance through subdued tones and beach house chic. Further afield, Ftelia Beach Club in Mykonos is the latest commercial venue to get the Moredesign touch.
Moredesign operates from a holistic base with each project encompassing every design element from conception to completion. Architecture, landscaping and interiors are considered in relation to each other, delivering a comprehensive design language that permeates through every space. A reverence for Ibiza’s architectural and cultural traditions informs the creative process which is evident not only in the architecture but in the respect for craftsmanship. As an essential element in the Moredesign aesthetic, the team collaborate with artisan makers across the Mediterranean.
A passion for design led the founders to create Moredecor, an offshoot of Moredesign that focuses on beautiful objects, fabrics, furniture and art. A complement to the architectural process, Moredecor provides an outlet to showcase remarkable work from across the design world and lets the team’s own designs shine. Clients can enjoy a complete experience from start to finish that guarantees their project encapsulates the essence of Ibiza architecture and design through a carefully curated collection.
Moredesign’s Ibiza office – helmed by partner and local architect Carlos Higinio – is a conduit for the team to expand across the islands and the world. With more and more international projects commissioned, the team of Ibiza architects’ portfolio is an ever-increasing display of high design. Solid roots that transverse time and location allow Moredesign to create long-lasting examples of beautiful, functional and timeless design.
