Nature incorporated in the house

A dilapidated stone stable turned into a country house, in the picturesque countryside outside Cáceres, Spain. Due to its remote, high mountainous location, “Finca Extremadura” is self-sufficient with the use of renewable energy sources. There is no electricity grid to provide power, so the house uses solar heat while two nearby streams provide hydropower and fresh water. The original stone from the outside of the property was used for the new construction, which closely resembles its predecessor. The old lofts were turned into bedrooms on the upper floor and limestone floors were added throughout the house, along with exposed concrete and wooden ceilings. There is a swimming pool in front of the property. It is designed by the architects of Ábaton Arquitectura, a company based in Madrid.
