Stylish refurbishment of a La Cerdanya home, Spain
Barcelona-based architectural practice, Dom Arquitectura, has designed the La Cerdanya project. Completed in 2014, the stylish home is located in a small village in La Cerdanya, Spain.
Located on the north valley side and south facing, the dense rural core is formed by about 20 houses, and is surrounded by fields and meadows where agriculture and farming are the main industries. The area boasts breathtaking views of the Cadi.
According to the architects: “Most buildings in the village are formed around an era. We can see in the village distribution map, that outside eras spaces organized the old constructions around them. They formed a structure grid set with old barns, stables and houses.
“One group of constructions formed by a haystack, a barn, a warehouse, a small house and badiu belonged to our client who wanted to rehabilitate the space set and make his home and several guest pavilions.
“We keep the volumes of the existing buildings, rehabilitating their facades and roofs and redistributing all interior spaces. The badiu was and old haystack, and now becomes a large covered and open space. It has been renovated keeping the old trusses that supported the roof. We use a roofing system where is no bonding material between timber and tiles.
“Inside the house several rooms and guests living areas area boast original exposed stone walls, wood coating, using iron elements and combining wood flooring with hydraulic tiles. The idea is to create large spaces, in a rural environment, where the surroundings privileged views become part of the interior design.”
