 Architects, based inBarcelonaandMexico Cityreused shell of the existing stone farm house on the site. Local stones were used to build a structure that allows it to handle any unexpected tectonic rumblings.  Thu 4800 square foot space is located in a simplified form with a vertical slash down the glass on both sides and angular expanse of glass in the front. Children have a down living room, which is designed like a stone farmhouse, a large door is carved in natural light and as a direct entry into quarters. There are two yellow boxes – one on each floor, containing stairs and cabinets for the home. Furniture and colors are spare and minimal-intentional move on the part of the design to provide a neutral background and a sense of space.   Wood floors, tight, crisp expanse of glass windows, a cool palette of colors in interior design and the significant use of rock mass are the main features that makes this home contemporary home blend with the environment so much. {Found on decoist}.
