        Text description provided by the architects. We find a building dating from the sixteenth century, where only the main facade and a masonry fretwork remain.

        The commission was to create a country house to be rented, looking for maximum utilization and with a small budget.

        A light staircase, located in the center of the property, articulates the space in all its levels. On the ground floor, it will separate the dining area – kitchen – hall. On the first floor, the bedrooms. On the second floor, the play area off the master bedroom. In the area of the fretwork, we placed a pool for relaxation and tranquility.

        Inside, we used few materials to highlight the existing stone: oak and painted iron. A continuous polished concrete floor unifies all the floors.

        Outside and on the back facade, a brick lattice sieves natural light and gives privacy to the bedrooms.

        Finally, tables, closets, cabinets, lamps... are designed specifically for this project.
