Title: The Beauty of Tradition: Sustainable Rehabilitation of a Farmhouse in Calonge


In the heart of Calonge, an architectural gem has been reborn. The rehabilitation of an old farmhouse, a project that has embraced sustainability and respect for nature, is an inspiring example of how traditional architecture and modern construction practices can come together to create something truly unique.

Km0 Materials: A Sustainable Choice

One of the most notable features of this project has been the use of Km0 materials. By choosing local materials for the restoration, we have not only reduced the project's carbon footprint, but we have also supported the local economy. Materials such as stone, wood and terracotta, extracted and processed near Calonge, have helped maintain the authentic essence of the farmhouse.

Respect for Nature: Harmony with the Environment

Respect for the natural environment has been a priority in each stage of the rehabilitation. We have worked meticulously to ensure that the renovation is in harmony with the surrounding landscape. The implementation of rainwater collection systems and the use of solar energy are just some of the features that have improved the sustainability of the farmhouse.

Recovery of Architectural Elements: Honoring the Past

An exciting aspect of this project has been the recovery and restoration of original architectural elements. From antique wooden beams to handcrafted ceramic tiles, each element has been carefully restored to preserve its history and beauty. This approach not only preserves the unique character of the farmhouse, but also tells the rich history of the region.

The Catalan Volta: A Touch of Traditional Elegance

One of the crown jewels of this project has been the restoration of the 'volta catalana', a type of architectural vault characteristic of Catalonia. Its preservation is not only a tribute to the craftsmanship of the original builders, but also offers a stunning aesthetic and a welcoming atmosphere inside the farmhouse.

Conclusion: A Sustainable Future Anchored in Tradition

The rehabilitation of this farmhouse in Calonge is a testament to the balance between modernity and tradition, sustainability and beauty. This project has not only given new life to a historic building, but has also established a model for future renovations that wish to respect and preserve the cultural and natural legacy of the region.
