From the architect. The project is an extension of a single family home located next to the Valmayor reservoir with a small pavilion and terrace oriented towards the water.

The integration of the new building with the existing comes as a result of the sloping roofs, while the laminated wood structural frames distinguish it as different. This 'light' construction seeks to make a transition between the original house and the surrounding landscape.

The project is hardly visible from the entry walkway, except for the gables that project slightly, finally becoming apparent from the interior of the parcel.

The structure consists of prefabricated laminate wood frames. They were assembled on site and painted white to blend with the exisiting house. The assembly at each joint employs a steel plate sandwiching the web of each frame and bolted from the exterior.

i come from viet nam and i like it

i agree Kris...way too much white

majchers · December 16, 2010

Interesting concept but - with all the due respect - why the heck you spoiled the beauty of natural wood and its colour and structure by painting all white?! I am not that sure if covering all with white colour is the best solution, however pleasing to the owner...

I disagree with Kris. While wood is a beautiful material, the designers where right to consider the context of the original house.

josephiklein.com · May 15, 2010

nice add on a historical bridge as a-posted to a "departure" goes nicely with the new global austerity

Dramatic extension! RT @HomeDecorNews Valdemorillo House Extension / Padilla Nicás Arquitectos http://bit.ly/8Z7k00 #architecture

I'm kind of disappointed they painted the wood - the color, texture, and tectonics of the wood assemblies would have brought a wonderful warmth to the project. Enough with the white.
