A good landlord doesn't throw anything away. What can a wooden element mean for architecture and design, a quarter of a century in seawater, exposed to storms and bad weather? You'll find this out in our article about a Spanish home. We're not just talking about used wood there, though.
Recycled wood used in construction comes from the recycling of local "bateas". This is the name of the wooden platforms placed in the sea and used in the industrial production of mussels. The wood used in this unique local fishing technique is exposed to sea waves and coastal weather for more than 25 years before it goes into processing.
It is usually intended for trellis vineyards or landscaping. The beams were treated twice for two different textures. The exterior of the wooden beam is rough and has an old texture. It is used for the exterior façade in order to match the urban scale. In contrast, wood used in interiors is an interior decorative element and deliberately serves to create more visual comfort and warmth.
The interior design's use of raw materials, natural reflective light and bathrooms finished with low-temperature glass creates a relaxing effect.
Another important feature of this house – the visual relationship of the different spaces that contribute to the interaction of the residents and the sense of spaciousness.
