Old vernacular house transformed into a modern residence: House in The Pyrenees
Exceptional dream houses built in splendid locations make your life feel like living in a fairytale. This is the case with the gorgeous House in The Pyrenees designed by Spanish architects Cadaval & Solà-Morale. This residential project in Canejan, Catalonia, Spain, challenged the architects to construct a new and modern residence on the remains of an old dry stone vernacular house.
Overlooking two different valleys from its top of the mountain location, the House in The Pyrenees features an interesting series of interior horizontal partitions supported by two vertical containers. These features allows further development of the internal structure, giving the owners the possibility of transforming the residential structure into two independent homes. Finished off with two intersecting roof planes, the residence gathers extended views of the surroundings.
