Excerpt: Ampliación Albarracín is a residence designed by the architectural firm Barrionuevo Villanueva Arquitectos. The idea of detail concerning the use becomes relevant in the design phase and is evident in the experience. Austerity marks a degree of thought in relation to the function and mechanisms of the different systems. Each one of the movements was designed to optimize the resource-limited fundamentally use. The new rest on the old, giving the whole a temporal meaning.

Project Description

(“Text as submitted by the Architects”)

So, we take advantage of the old and connect the new. A piece appears that begins to respond to the new needs of character and current material logic.

The light structure is chosen so as not to put what exists at risk. And this, exposed, is shown together with the wooden planes of the enclosures that make up the character of the space.

Inside, multi-laminated wood solves all the equipment and gives warmth. The south wall is a solid wood sixty centimetres thick that contains the place of storage, acting as thermal bellows. At one end, the storage niches of this piece come to link the double-height and dialogue with the staircase that is also a library.
