The existing structure was not only that, a foundation for the new extension, but a big cool air cushion that would be used as a costless temperature regulator. As in many of our commissions, the budget was very low, so it was easier to stick to the essential, giving each element more than one function. Structural brick walls were chosen for they are the cheapest and most spread way of building here. We kept them bare. The garden had some big pine trees. Instead of cutting them, we used them as big shades for  summer. It also had some lousy walls and stairs which we just cleaned and slightly repaired.

Architecture: David Tapias, Núria Salvadó
M/E: Josep M. Delmuns
Constructor: Paco Guart

Slight, almost invisible changes in the windows and shutter system were made, so as to improve their performance and simplify their assembly. 

A new kitchen was added, and some minor repairs to the existing garage were made. This home seems to be destined to a perpetual state of construction.
