Property Inspiration: Converted Off-Grid Stable – Spain

05 Aug
August 5, 2013


In the countryside of Cáceres, Spain, life continues how it has for centuries—livestock farming is king, ranches are handed down through generations, and the rolling hills offer food, water and shelter for the cattle and their owners. So when Madrid city-dwellers Carlos Alonso and his sister Camino bought an abandoned stable, the countryside looked twice.

But there was nothing to fear—change wasn’t in the cards. The siblings are partners at architecture firm Ábaton, which prioritizes sustainability and preserving place. Instead of letting a stable rot, they brought new life to the structure, building a modern home that learned from, and pays homage to, the countryside.
