“A new life for a forgotten treasure”
The client shares with us an amazing challenge: to give light to a hidden villa in a historical village of the Basque country. For that purpose, our work starts from a typological analysis of the house in order to maintain its essence. As a result, the main staircase appears as an amazing sculpture that organizes the whole floors around it, and brings light into the deep internal areas of the building. Surrounding areas of the plot are treated as well, trying to gain a unique fresh and natural environment.
