Traditional Family House Made of Sandstone: Project DG in Spain
DG House is a residential project completed by Iñigo Esparza Arquitecto in Navarre, Spain. House looks traditional, boasting two volumes made of sandstone. Surrounded by a fence on which plants can climb, the house features a private terrace and a porch for lounging and relaxing. In the hot summer days, a cold drink and a book is all you need to keep your soul happy. Ground floor of the house, accommodating the kitchen, living room and dining room, was envisioned as a unified social area, encouraging interaction and activities of all kinds. It’s airy, well-lit and most important, connected to the porch and the adjacent public garden.
“Towards the main facade, a stripe containing the service area, laundry and garage ensures the privacy of the house. The volume of the first floor holds the night-area, with three bedrooms facing the garden (south-west) leaving the dressing-room and bathrooms towards the main facade. Finally the basement contains a multi-purpose space and the facilities room.” The back of the house offers a little bit more privacy to the residents. A swimming pool landscaped with local plants was also part of the plan.
