Estate in Extremadura, Cáceres, Spain | Abaton

Today 's dose of simplicity comes from a stable conversion in Cáceres, in the countryside of Extremadura, Spain, by architectural studio Ábaton.

Once an abandoned shelter, it is converted into a contemporary family home that combines its modern style and conveniences, with the elements and aesthetics of the original, traditional country farmhouse.

Description by Abaton:

322m2. 5ha. Country House.

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.
