We always love to hear about nice architecture projects that reuse old buildings. In La Cerdanya, a small village from Spain, the historic landscape is reinforced by stone houses that today were reused and modernized. Dom Arquitectura did a beautiful job keeping the original features of the house they rehabilitated. They reused old spaces like a barn, a haystack, a warehouse and a small house to transform them in guest pavilions.
They balanced the cold feeling of the stone with the warmth offered by the wood and focused on the rural environment. Even though from outside it might have a rough, traditional look, for the interior only some of the stone walls were kept and other materials merged to transmit the homey feeling of a modern house.
The wood flooring was combined with hydraulic tiles so they formed a continuous large space highlighting the wood beams on the ceiling.
Such a great house should stand as an example for future renovation projects.
