In the picturesque countryside outside the city of Cáceres, Spain, Madrid-based firm Ábaton Arquitectura reimagined a crumbling stone stable as a rustic home for holidaying.

Due to its remote high mountain location, ‘Finca Extremadura’ is self-sufficient—making use of renewable energy sources. There is no electrical grid providing power supply, so the house uses solar heat gain, while two nearby streams provide hydroelectricity and fresh water for drinking and bathing. The original stone from the exterior of the property was used for the new construction, which greatly resembles its predecessor. Old haylofts were converted into bedrooms upstairs, and limestone floors were added throughout the house, along with exposed concrete walls and wooden ceilings. A long island bench runs through the living-dining area, and a swimming pool spans the front of the property. “Nature has been incorporated almost to every room in the house”, explain the architects. Bathrooms have views of the interior patio and its stone water fountain, and the bedrooms have large windows that overlook the countryside.
