House JA was envisioned to combine a rural and urban lifestyle and the result was PERFECT! “The existent stone ruins, a vestige of a traditional home and the configuration of the lot were the main aspects of the new project. The first principle was to separate the new and the old construction, even if they are connected inside.”, you can read at freshome.
One of the principles was to separate the new and the old construction, even if they are connected inside. A stone volume represents the existent building; a concrete volume the new one.
The second one, was to introduce light in the middle of the building. Two different empty spaces were generated: the entrance, and the heart of this home – the courtyard. As you can see here.
Mixing Rural and Urban Lifestyles: this building is a modern project mixing the old and the new, full of beautiful rooms and a clean but cozy ambiance. Visit the architect’s pages for more information about their work!
