Ready to learn something today?! A Masia is “a type of rural construction common to the Iberian Peninsula, particularly during the ancient Kingdom of Aragon which have their origins in the Roman villas. They are often large but isolated structures, nearly always associated with a family farming or livestock operation (from Wikipedia)” This is a renovation of a masia in Catalonia, Spain by Cubus, Taller d’Arquitectura that is modern, earthy, simple, textural and gorgeous!

“The project was based in the rehabilitation and improvement of the northern part of an old masia from the XVI th century and the hayloft annex, located in the Baix Empordà (Catalonia). Due to the partition in different parts of the masia between the family members, the proposal was based on adapting the corresponding north area to create three new apartments designed for use in summer, mainly.”

What do you think of this earthy and modern architectural specimen?
