According to the architects: The refurbishment project has, as its primary objective, conditioning the existing structure as a new home. Primarily we will keep the stone facades and make new floor slabs and roofs, creating a comfortable home through adequate facilities and finishes. Secondly we will make a new volume that allows us to expand the hall forming a covered access. This new volume will link with and open up to the garden space.

The main driving idea is coexistence. Coexistence of such an ancient and irregular façade, with a new absolutely straight and current volume. The existing stone volume, as the heavier element, contrasts with the completely light new volume that seems floating. A traditional structure coexisting with a new fully open layout on the ground floor, with continuous and open spaces.

The ground floor presents an open kitchen with a dining and living rooms. They integrate well with the new gallery and porch overlooking the garden. The open fireplace is placed on a strategic intermediate point and could be enjoyed from any of the spaces. The bedrooms are located on the first floor, where we propose an inside thermal insulation coating.
