In the 1930s, some intellectuals such as Walter Benjamin, and Walter Gropius or Le Corbusier came to Ibiza. They recognized what was special about the mostly single-story construction of the finca buildings on the island.
The stacked cubic elements of these fincas greatly inspired the Bauhaus architecture. The finca buildings only have flat roofs to collect the rainwater that is collected in cisterns. The windows are very small so that the rooms stay cool in summer. Erwin Broner, who lived in Ibiza for a long time, dealt intensively with the island architecture and modernized some old houses. Much later, the Canadian Rolph Blakstad  studied island architecture and subsequently built it in the Neo-Ibizan style.
Today's architecture is still shaped by historical architecture.
Newly built fincas are based on the early models with regard to the cubic elements, the white facades, the wooden ceilings etc., but the living comfort is significantly increased by means of larger window areas, modern heating and air conditioning systems etc.
In the case of new villas, it should be noted that the trend has been moving away from overly pronounced minimalism, e.g. with exposed concrete in living rooms.
Instead, modern and quite reduced forms are combined with "warm" materials (wood, natural stone, etc.) to create a cozy atmosphere in the villa.
