Summer house in Platja d'Aro, Costa Brava
Refurbishment and extension of a Mediterranean style house
This holiday home, of a Mediterranean character, was built half a century ago using traditional Catalan construction methods. It has been refurbished and modernised internally to increase natural light. The kitchen and porch have been extended to create a courtyard to connect the interior living areas with the outdoor. This offers shade and the addition of a pool completes the integration of these areas.
The project maintainsseveral original features such as course renders on the exterior and parabolic arches. To respect the home´s heritage, handmade clay tiles have been fitted in the courtyard and on internal staircases. White has been used to preserve its Mediterranean ambience.
