New Age Design-Sustainable House In Spain
A spectacular design from XPIRAL Architecture has sustainable features which made the house into news, Casa de los Pinos, the name of the house, which means House among the Pines; this house is situated in Mountain EI Esparragal, Murcia, Spain.
Casa de los Pinos (House Among the Pines) proves that sustainable features need not play second fiddle to fashionable ones. This amazing modern house designed by XPIRAL Architecture sits high on a mountain in El Esparragal, Murcia, Spain, nestled among the pines for which it’s named. Enclosed in walls of glass, an interior grassy courtyard allows nature to permeate the design. Locally sourced building materials are used where possible, such as the rock fashioned into walls, and timber used to build the home’s pathways. And at the end of the day, the number of trees removed from the site was later replanted on the property. With sustainable design accounted for, the architects too took a modern, fashion-forward approach to the unique home, topping it with a futuristic roof which folds over to conceal the home’s expansive windows. Natural light floods interiors, illuminating modern, industrial details like exposed beams, concrete and the contemporary framed windows.XPIRAL via Inhabitat
