Mas Arquitectura designed the ‘Gandario’ in Spain.
Description from the architects:
The warmth of the traditional designs perpetuates on light forms in this house placed on A Coruña (Spain).
Quality materials and warm spaces have been characterizing the Galician traditional architecture since XV century. Marcos Samaniego architect, from Mas Arquitectura, a young Spanish study, has added a new element to this tradition: the design. As a result, this house has been built in A Coruña (Spain). The architect has added enamel wood to galician traditional material, Stone, in order to maintain the warmth of the house.
However, the bioclimatic plan of the house leads to a simple lines design, with large windows in the walls in order to allow nature comes into the interior space. The revolutions´ origin. The carpentries, which are introduced into de Stone walls, make stronger the structure.
The interior are emphasized by brightness and warm colors. In addition, the sun light gets over all the spaces from a skylight in the main floor. In the kitchen, you can observe smooth surfaces and design furniture.
Details are very important in this house. The main stair, covered by oak wood, receives the light from the large window and it is decomposed creating a hand-made library.
