Spanish farmhouse revived by Dom Arquitectura with modern materials and details

Photography is by Jordi Anguera. A mixture of modern pendant lighting and basket shades hang down between the exposed wooden trusses to create low-level lighting. The old house is one of just 20 residences of a tiny village in   La Cerdanya – a historical region in the eastern   Pyrenees where industry traditionally centred around agriculture. The studio also introduced tiling, with splashes of red, green and blue interspersed with shades of cream and yellow ochre. Project credits:

New staircases were created from folded steel, while stable doors and window shutters are made from wood. Some walls and surfaces have been replastered and painted white, but many of the stone surfaces have been left uncovered.

Barcelona-based   Dom Arquitectura was tasked with transforming a series of small buildings, including the farmhouse, a barn, a warehouse and a hay storage space, to create a home for the client and several accompanying guest suites. “Our client wanted to rehabilitate the space set,” explained studio founder Pablo Serrano Elorduy, whose previous projects include a shoe shop in a converted butchers.
