Respect for Traditional Architecture: Inspiring House Rehabilitation in Spain
Barcelona-based Dom Arquitectura recently completed a stunning renovation project in Noutigos, A Coruņa, Spain. According to the development team, the aim was to act respecting the current volumes of the old house, located close to the river. Maintaining the stone facade and replacing the original windows, the architects envisioned two new small and strategic openings in the south wall for views and the natural light needed inside. The new openings with iron frame and fixed glass contrast with the existing ones, which were treated with a chestnut wood. The entrance garden has been enhanced with reclaimed flagstones, wood benches, ivy and lavender, for a simple but hearty welcome.
