Ibiza living: Blakstad Design Consultants
Fusing tradition and modernity
Fusing fundamental Ibicenco traditions with functionality, form and taste is the trademark of a Blakstad Design Consultants project. Dedicated to bestowing cultural significance on today’s architecture in Ibiza, you can rest assured every aspect of your renovation, reformation or construction is in highly skilled hands.
From the sourcing and acquisition of your desired Ibiza property to architectural and interior design, planning, building and landscaping, the Blakstad Ibiza design office can professionally manage one or all of these elements, taking into account the unique needs and economic basis of each project to ensure extraordinary results.
After permanently relocating to Ibiza in 1956, Canadian born Rolph Blakstad – who studied Medieval and Renaissance art and architecture in Florence before a visit to Morocco inspired his extensive research into Islamic traditional architecture, craft design and thus the origins of Ibicenco architecture – founded Blakstad Design Consultants in 1967.
Today, the family business is run by his sons Rolf and Nial – a company that has grown to become one of the island’s most highly regarded and well-respected design firms and humbly boasts a portfolio laden with properties of incredible ambience, a unique energy and striking beauty.
The design and development of historic Mediterranean – primarily Ibicencan – dwellings is their specialty, successfully combining the famous structural style with modern techniques to suit the contemporary lifestyles of their clients. Imagine an ancient finca converted into a luxurious villa or a plot of uneven and overgrown land transformed into a picturesque new property.
Working with an intellectual, emotional and intuitive approach to their work, Blakstad are committed to understanding the ancient traditions in which Ibiza’s architecture is steeped, yet appreciate the need to creatively adapt with modernity.
This is the Blakstad touch.
