In a small coastal town in Spain, Fuertes-Penedo Arquitectos breathe new life into an ancient stone dwelling. The existing structure was comprised of two volumes with a third added over time. During the extensive restoration, the original forms were salvaged while the extension was replaced with a concrete addition. The new construction mirrors the same silhouette of the previous building and all three forms a topped with a unifying zinc roof. Inside, new white walls and light wood floors meet with archaic stone walls creating a warm, minimalist atmosphere. Throughout the interior, added skylights wash the living spaces with natural light while ample glazing opens rooms to views across the estuary.
