Description:

“Peraleda House is a comprehensive rebuild, keeping part of the original walls of the existing house and the yard, located in a small and historic town in Cáceres. The project aims to think about how to revive an existing house into a contemporary home in a classic urban area setting with restrictive rules.

To do that, two distinct elements are combined. On the one hand, a stone element as the ordinances dictate that lays the base of the house span the entrance and give access to the home through metal doors. On the other hand, a sinuous line crosses the night areas and the pool and forms the inner courtyard.

This duality provides two types of facades: an introverted one with metallic and flared openings respond to those of a church across the street; and the other one is extroverted with large openings that let in light through the courtyard.”
