It Dates Back Many Years Ago and Has a Lot of History!
Just by the entrance of Parc Natural de Garraf in Catalan, Spain is this distinct structure. On the outside, the structure is designed with a combination of smooth concrete and rugged rocks with large timber windows. This design symbolizes a contrast of old and new and a reflection of the test of time this structure had to endure.
Inside, the purpose of the structure is more clearly defined. The light-washed interiors and minimalist theme shows a comfy atmosphere. The interiors are also designed with hints of Mediterranean elements. The structure is eco-friendly and has solar panels, diesel tanks, and rainwater harvesting installed.
This beautiful structure is actually a home. It comes as a surprise to many as it is also a historical site that was built in the 1800s. Called the “Can Tomeu,” the structure was originally used for agricultural and stone-crafting purposes. Today, it was redesigned to serve a very different purpose – a humble abode for a couple or a small family.
In addition to sensitively restoring and reinforcing the remaining walls from the original construction, the architects expanded the building footprint with an annex and inserted site-sensitive materials that imbue the home with a sense of warmth.
