A dream villa on the shores of the Mediterranean

A dream villa on the shores of the Mediterranean

Albert Font

Dream of holidays with this villa in the heart of Ibiza overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Bright and design, this artist's house combines modern architecture and openness to nature for a change of scenery guaranteed.

After having lived and invested with their respective sensibilities two magnificent fincas in the ibicenca countryside, the artists Chico and Linde Bialas have decided to turn to a more urban place yielding to the temptation of the strict and modern lines of the Casa Kaufmann built in the years 1960 by the architect Erwin Broner. With its perfectly graphic and aerial structure where light is omnipresent, the villa, like a corner of paradise in the heart of the city, seems to have been designed only to offer the sea and the horizon. Perched above three terraces planted with olive trees, rose bushes or a small vegetable garden, memories of moments spent cultivating their gardens of yesteryear, the deep blue tiled pool is an additional water line in the landscape.

Outside, happy marriage of architecture, sculptures by Martin Bialas, Fermob chairs and ibicenca jars.

Equally uncluttered, the interior is like a blank sheet of paper where Chico and Linde have put their furniture signed by big names in design as their handcrafted objects gleaned during their travels. But above all, especially, the calm and bare walls are more than perfect paintings to hang their works, their photos and their paintings to which are added the sculptures of their son Martin. Because their house is above all a universe that inevitably houses their workshops ... Facing the sea, Linde celebrates the curves and the body of femininity in the strength of the line, throwing on the canvas the reverie of a woman with half-closed eyes . In the cave of Chico, countless negatives and black-and-white photos show the excitement of 1980s fashion, between glamor and sweet sensuality and where Monica Bellucci, Eva Herzigova and Naomi Campbell and Helena Christensen smile face to face. to his goal.

The photographer Chico Bialas and his artist-painter Linde, fell in love with this architect-designed house by Erwin Broner that overlooks the sea.

The library is dedicated to the works of art. On a Moroccan carpet, Eero Saarinen's Womb Chair, Knoll's lamp-sculpture in welded metal and African lacquered aluminum table and bronze legs signed Martin Bialas. Table David Hockney and on the table, a photo book of Chico Bialas.

In the Bialas, art is at home. And, like the sculpture of the lighthouse pool, a huge shell and its bronze oar, out of an imaginary marine odyssey, Broner House still seems to offer the work of Martin Bialas, the eldest son of Chico and Linde , an unexpected setting. A living and personal gallery for his installations, his paintings or his sculptures of steel, bronze or patinated copper. Thus, just for beauty, art would have met architecture here at a glance? Proof is that there are still refuges far from the clichés of the turbulent life of Ibiza, islands of peace born to contemplate the Mediterranean and draw endless wave of inspiration.

In the spacious living room, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona coffee table, Knoll edition, PK22 metal and rattan armchairs by Paul Kjaerholm at Fritz Hansen, Living Divani sofa, Moroccan wool carpet and Martin Bialas floor lamp with cutlery Japanese paper day.
