The ibizaliving team believes in a design and architecture that seeks solutions for sustainability in nature, not by replicating the natural forms, but by understanding the rules governing those forms.

It is a multi-disciplinary approach to sustainable design that follows a set of principles rather than stylistic codes. Studying these principles – the forms, the proportions, the golden mean , the ratios, the fibonacci numbers, the shapes,  the ibizaliving designers and architects believe that  the Golden Ratio, or Divine Proportion, is the key proportion behind these processes that beget life.

It is a universal principle that can be found on all levels of existence, from the dance of atoms to spiraling galaxies, the molecules of our DNA, the cornea of our eye, snow flakes, pine cones, flower petals, diamond crystals, the branching of trees, a nautilus shell, the star we spin around, , every type of growth and motion is governed by it.

We are a microcosmic reflection of the macrocosm. The structure of the human body is based upon the same set of principles that are found functioning on all levels of creation. Our body contains within it holographically all the information of the universe.

The golden ratio describes the special relationship found in nature between two parts of a whole. It can be described in terms of number, length, area, volume and, to a certain degree, beauty and consciousness. The golden ratio is the mathematical proportion 1:1.618034…ad infinitum. Often called by its Greek name phi, it is also known as the Divine Proportion, the Golden Ratio, the Golden Section and the Golden Mean.

Our bodies automatically read the signals of our environment though all of our myriad senses.  This contextual flow is constantly being received and regulated by our biology and edited by our minds, which in turn reflect and project accordingly in perfect balance and harmony.  We broadcast our sense of self identity back into the world, and the mutual exchange continues in an endless relationship loop, giving rise to our personal experiences that coalesce and form our realities.  Our lives are never separate or self contained; rather they are projections of our thoughts, feelings and emotions, as they bubble up and express like surface foam on the infinite sea of manifest creation.

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.”

John Muir
