For anyone looking to find inspiration as to the best ways to update an older 21st century home, the Villa CP by ZEST Architects will provide a few ideas.
The home is located in Girona, Spain, and the firm has managed to update the entire place to contrast the old and new against one another perfectly. The stone outside has been restored in some places where necessary, but dark wooden beams and doors have also been added to give the place a sense of modernity.
According to the architecture firm, "the old has been left visible with all its scars, while new materials such as Corten steel, wood and clay, were chosen for the beauty of their natural imperfections and the way in which the traces left by time make them even more beautiful," as seen on The Contemporist.
