London and A Pobra do Caramiñal-based architectural practice, Iñaki Leite, has designed the Dezanove House project. The luxury self-catering holiday home is located on the Galician coastline along the Arousa estuary, in A Pobra do Caramiñal, Spain.

This luxury holiday home stands out for its use of recycled wood from the local fishing industry. It is also a reference to the area and boasts contemporary architectural design and many eco-credentials.

According to HomeDsgn: “The recycled wood used in the construction comes from recycling of local “bateas”. These are wooden platforms placed at sea and used in the mussel production industry. The wood used in this unique local fishing technique is exposed to the sea and coastal weather for over 25 years before being sent to recycling normally for vineyards or gardening. The beams have been treated and halved to produce two different textures. The outer part of the wood beam is rough and keeps the old texture. This is therefore used for the outer façade as a response to the urban scale. On the contrary, the wood used in the interiors, is the inside cut of the beam and is purposely used to provide more visual comfort and warmth.

“In the interior design, the use of the raw materials, natural reflexed light and bathrooms in frozen glass, create a relaxing effect. Another important feature of this house is the visual relationship of the different spaces, which contribute to the interaction of the occupants and the good spacious sensation.”
