Showcasing a smart and seamless fusion of Mediterranean industrial and contemporary styles is a private residence designed by Egue y Seta. The house takes its inspiration from modern industrial lofts and this distinct design approach is showcased in each and every room of the renovated home. Located in Benicàssim which is renowned across the globe for hosting Spain’s top music festival the house epitomizes the tranquil lifestyle of the region. The landscape around the home is filled with beautiful gardens and provides a soothing getaway even as you overlook the pristine beach just a stone’s throw away.
The idea behind the project was simple enough in principle but far harder to execute. The harsh weather of the region meant that the new home needed the right insulation and an air circulation system that kept the interiors fresh while keeping the heat indoors.
A great perk in embracing the concept of adaptive reuse is the way that you can turn those old family homes into sparkling contemporary residences with little effort and creativity. This not only saves money and time but preserves all those memories that come attached with the home.
