Spanish architecture practice Ábaton Architects has transformed an abandoned stable in Extremadura, Spain, into a green, contemporary family home.
Located in the province of Cáceres, the stable was transformed into a family home that is consistent and respectful with the environment.
Electricity and water supply is generated through sustainability systems, such as solar panel system with storage batteries was developed to supply energy during the summer; turbines were installed taking advantage of the course of the two streams that run through the estate providing electricity for the winter.
Swimming pool of the house is built with the stones found in the surrounding area.
The supporting walls in the interior were replaced by light metal pillars, the haylofts in the upper area were converted into bedrooms, the water through became the fountain that is situated in the interior courtyard of the property and the enormous central lounge that serves different purposes took up the remaining area.
