Barcelona-based Dom Arquitectura recently completed a gorgeous renovation project in Noutigos, A Coruña, Spain. According to the improvement group, the aim was to act respecting the current volumes of the old property, positioned close to the river. Preserving the stone facade and replacing the original windows, the architects envisioned two new little and strategic openings in the south wall for views and the natural light required inside. The new openings with iron frame and fixed glass contrast with the existing ones, which have been treated with a chestnut wood. The entrance garden has been enhanced with reclaimed flagstones, wood benches, ivy and lavender, for a simple but hearty welcome.
The ground floor is an open space with a continuous pavement, exactly where the dining room, the kitchen and the living region are located. 1st level accommodates 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. The second floor was also turned into an open space, flooded in all-natural light by way of skylights and a cut in the cover that originates a little terrace with stunning views to Finisterre and the Carnota bay.
