Two modest sized internal courtyards situated in the center of the house . gradoli & sanz architects decided to organize everything around these two spaces: one that sits in transition between the living room and kitchen, while the other is shaded, intimate and filled with vegetation.
Large timber-framed doors mark the boundaries between inside and outside; the larger patio features a large olive tree with a staircase that gives the residents access to a roof terrace while the interior is warm and relates back to its existing context. This is highlighted with the concrete and brickwork used predominantly throughout, with a bookshelf that runs the length of the horizontal wall.
