Text description provided by the architects. Peraleda House is a comprehensive rebuild, keeping part of the original walls of the existing house and the yard, located in a small and historic town in Cáceres. The project aims to think about how to revive an existing house into a contemporary home in a classic urban area setting with restrictive rules.
To do that, two distinct elements are combined. On the one hand, a stone element as the ordinances dictate that lays the base of the house span the entrance and give access to the home through metal doors. On the other hand, a sinuous line crosses the night areas and the pool and forms the inner courtyard.
This duality provides two types of facades: an introverted one with metallic and flared openings respond to those of a church across the street; and the other one is extroverted with large openings that let in light through the courtyard.
1. Access to the House through the hallway that the stone masonry conforms to.
2. Introverted-facades avoiding the views of neighbors and outgoing-facade that illuminates the interior.
3. Enter from the hallway through metal doors to the daily areas.
