The existing stone walls have been largely rebuilt, with enormous openings towards the landscape linking the house to its spectacular surroundings: a National Park of cork oak with distant views towards the Mediterranean.Save this picture!SectionZest Architecture’s work is always marked by sustainability, so it may not come as a surprise that this project sports materials and elements such as a natural pool whose water is filtered by plants and gravel, insulation with locally harvested and produced cork, clay and stray panel finishes in the interior and heating / cooling through a geothermal installation.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaThe old and the new (that which will age) strengthen each other in this project through their opposition and juxtaposition. The old has been left visible with all its scars, while new materials such as Corten steel, wood and clay, were chosen for the beauty of their natural imperfections and the way in which the traces left by time make them even more beautiful. Rain, wind, human touch…. will make sure that this house will be even more beautiful over time.Project gallerySee allShow lessVIDEO: Inside A Data Center, The Architecture Of The CloudVideosRenovation of an Industrial Building into a Single Family House / Guim Costa Calsami…Selected Projects Share Area: 440 m² Area: 440 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Villa CP / Zest Architecture Projects CopyAbout this officeZest ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentGironaHousesRefurbishmentSpainPublished on May 15, 2014Cite: “Villa CP / Zest Architecture” 15 May 2014.
