ÁBATON / Finca en Extremadura
Posted on 01/22/2012
Madrid-based studio ÁBATON has completed the Finca en Extremadura project, the conversion of an abandoned stable into a family home.
This 3,465 square foot residence is nestled in a privileged environment in the province of Cáceres, Spain.
Finca en Extremadura by ÁBATON:
“Located in a privileged environment in the province of Cáceres, the goal was to transform an abandoned stable into a family home by completely renovating it in a way that would be consistent and respectful with the environment.
Problems relating to the electricity and water supply were solved through sustainability systems which ABATON uses in all its projects: a 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.”
