Beautiful Houses: Estate in Extremadura
Fri, 12/28/2012 - 14:35
I have been doing the Beautiful Houses post for a while now, and I am also a big fan of architecture. And although I browse architecture related sites looking for inspiring houses, every single day I get impressed with new architectural master pieces.
Today we will show you the stylish Extremadura, Spain, a project by Ábaton Architects. This place is pretty unique. The materials, open spaces and flow are great. Definitely a great place to live ;)Description from the architects:
Located in a privileged environment in the province of Cáceres, the goal was to transform an abandoned stable into a family home by completely renovating it in a way that would be consistent and respectful with the environment. Problems relating to the electricity and water supply were solved through sustainability systems which ABATON uses in all its projects: a solar panel system with storage batteries was developed to supply energy during the summer; turbines were installed taking advantage of the course of the two streams that run through the estate providing electricity for the winter.
Check out Ábaton Architects website for further inspiring projects.
We found this house at Contemporist.
