Practically ancient buildings of the 12th Century aren’t all in tact nor as well cared for and curated as this particular home in Extremadura, Spain. What was once a home for Monks turned into an Oil Mill, and is now the perfect spot for a family in the old stone shelter.
Architect Ricardo Elizondo transformed the old and dilapidated structure into a beautifully habitable home that evokes a certain sophistication about it. Centuries old brick and built in beams and wooden structures are all on display with a cool mixture of contemporary art, rich blue hues and clean lines. The eclectic feel is topped off with a few ornate furniture pieces and lots of texture to tie in the architecture with its interior elements.
