John Pawson and David Chipperfield have been revealed to be among the 18 international practices working on a luxury residential development in Ibiza
The star London architects are each designing high-end villas for the second phase of the €360 million Sabina development, which will see up to 50 new BREEAM Excellent homes created on the Balearic island.
