“Luxury and exclusivity within the traditional rural context”
This spectacular farmhouse rests imposingly in the rural surroundings of Gipuzkoa, between vast grassy hills. What was
once the home of a noble family (as evidenced by the coat of arms that is preserved on the main facade) has become, in
recent years, a warehouse to shelter livestock. Our team understands this project as an exercise to rethink a unique and
valuable historical structure and adapt it to today’s standards and needs. The interior is redistributed, spatial relationships
are modified, and all materials are cleaned up. But maintaining the rustic essence of the traditional Basque baserri is a
premise, including much of the decoration, furniture and finishes. Elements of contemporary furniture stand out in this
predominantly traditional style as if they were carefully chosen museum pieces.
