House Conversion in Cilleros


Project description

The only outward sign of the conversion of this old house in western Spain are the dark red soffits. Yet as part of the refurbishment, an atrium with a birch tree was inserted asymmetrically at the heart of the building, and all the old timber beams have been replaced with a steel structure spanned between the walls.

A 40 cm jump in floor level accommodates the different window heights on the street and garden faces. This is taken up by a metal grating that is used as bench seating. White walls and white painted steel are graphically paired with the red ceramic ceiling elements.
