When restoring an old or historic building, usually the goal is to preserve as much as the original as possible. You want it to get a fresh new look but, at the same time, you want it to preserve its charm and character. Most often, the architecture remains untouched with a few repairs made when necessary. But it’s easier to look at this when you have an example to analyze so let’s take a look at this beautiful house.
Located in Cáceres, Spain, the residence is known as Casa Cañadas Molino Guadalupe. It was recently restored. It was a project by Madrid based architect, painter and sculptor Kico Camacho. The work started in 2010 and the project was completed the same year. The architectural restoration project was a great success. The rustic country house didn’t lose any of its charm. The history is still all there and there are plenty of beautiful architectural features to admire.
The restoration included the preservation of several elements. For example, the stonework was preserved and the same thing goes for the steel staircases and railings. The residence has concrete flooring, high ceilings and windows and an overall old but charming look. Inside you can see open spaces decorated with unique artwork and custom accessories.
There are lots of things that give character to this place. We’re not talking about the exterior, although it’s very imposing and beautiful. There are many elements inside this residence that you don’t usually see in other old buildings.Here they have been preserved and they contribute to an overall unique design.
The atmosphere inside is hard to describe. Given the fact that the décor is unlike any other, it’s hard to know if it feels inviting or just unusual. However, one thing is certain: this is a gorgeous house, restored beautifully and with great taste, with an artistic and stylish feel.
