This spectacular vacation house was designed by Cadaval & Sola-Morales. The project seeks to recuperate the construction values of an old existing vernacular house which was made out of dry stone. It features amazing views over the valley, while an identical window located on the top of the roof enables to view the summit of the mountain.
The project is sympathetic of vernacular architecture by respecting not only the envelope, but also its construction and operational logics and its esthetics. The architects kept the exterior completely original, respecting its history, while creating a new and contemporary living space. A big opening is shaped within the dry stone wall which provides amazing views and interior natural lighting to a second living and dining room.
