The project consists in a complete remodel of an old town house in Extremadura just keeping the retained rough-textured existing façades and the party walls.

The programme is divided in four identical size spaces which rise around a courtyard. There is a living room, a kitchen and two bedrooms with a bathroom each.
Choosing a deciduous tree guarantees us a shadow in the hottest season, while in winter lets in the sun to heat and light the rooms. It also works as a visual filter between spaces. The ground floor is a free plan suitable for many uses, without heating either air-conditioning but connected with the garden at the back.

The work shows its pure materiality and deliberately contrasts with irregular textures of rammed-earth and stone, which have been whitewashed. It has sought an atmosphere where the red color of the ceramic and the intense green birch predominate, and it’s the light that bathes these materials through various shades of the walls and floors throughout the day. The ceramic material itself gives us the desired texture and warm color, so paintings or false ceilings were unnecessary.
