La Higuera house
Location: Moclín (Granada)
What does it take to imagine a warm hearth while you are looking at dark house with low ceilings and closed rooms with too different levels? How do you even begin to picture a table set for a Sunday lunch when everything is covered of rock and debris?
Our challenge was to restore a typical old dark and close house from 1900 and turn it into a family home incorporating modern elements and comforts without totally erasing its original character. Mixing old and new architectural elements have brought striking results: black aluminium window provides contrast with the more rustic stone paving below and old beams.
A charming house full of different corners to relax, with tables and lounge chairs built on site so that life can continue outside in the warm weather.
However, most people have absolutely no idea of the work involved in achieving restoring an abandoned house and bringing lovingly back to life. For those who might be embarking on a similar project, in Two south of Granada is told a truthful account of our clients’ experience.
