Ca l’Amo is located at the north end of the San Mateo plain on the island of Ibiza. The are is famous for its  pronounced topography and fanned by stone walls that generate an iconic landscape of the countryside of Ibiza. The intervention has been located taking advantage of the last of the terraces, between two existing dry stone walls and on the border between the rugged part of the plot and a flat and low area to the south west.

The house has been organized in five clearly differentiated volumes, generating between them spaces of relation, services, visual connection with the outside and ventilation. The length of the five volumes is conditioned by the depth of the terrace on which the dwelling sits, which helps to integrate the intervention into the landscape.

For the materialization, dry construction systems have been chosen, with a widespread presence of wood and breathable and healthy solutions. All the facades are ventilated and breathable, with two differentiated solutions manifesting their finish: the transverse, opaque and in contact with the dry stone walls that make earth containment have been finished by means of slats of Lunawood, while the longitudinal ones where the openings and patios are concentrated have been executed with synthetic mineral-based panels of large format.
