The request consisted in an integral renovation of a building that, more than single-family could be defined as one hundred per cent family. The personality of the owners and the use it will be given, make this concept much more adequate.
Taking advantage of the space and its functionality have been bases of the act.
Maintaining the main facade, the rehabilitation of the already existing wooden ceilings, recovering the old winery-cellar and the reutilisation of some elements like the cement tiles or the wooden doors and windows, have been done with the utmost care. The rest of the materials have been chosen in accordance to the old ones so that they enrich the aesthetics and maintain the essence of a village house.
The new wooden cover has been placed over the conserved facade of the house and the pattern of windows above, fits in to the old ornamented walls creating concordance between the old and the original parts of the building.
