Link to: History

Founder Rolph Blakstad relocated to Ibiza from Canada in 1956 after studying art and architecture in Florence and working as a documentary filmmaker. A visit to Morocco led him to investigate the history of architecture in Ibiza culminating in the establishment of Blakstad Design Consultants in 1967.

We conceive our projects as a whole. The interrelation of interior and exterior spaces are considered, along with how to fully integrate the house into the surrounding landscape.
