alemanys 5, anna noguera

Thursday 26 May 2011

These images have been infecting the blogosphere like the black plague over the last month or so, but I love this project so much I couldn't resist the temptation to reblog it, one more time.

This 16th century house in Girona has been converted into two apartments by Spanish Architect, Anna Noguera.

It's a textural fanfare. The stone walling, the exposed timber structure, the satin finish of the black steel plates and the gauzy linen drapes are all so tantalizing. The juxtaposition of these textures even makes the flatness of the plasterboard wall seem appealing (see kitchen image).

To add to this, the muted tones of the scheme and the hints of Scarpa-esque detailing place this project firmly into my list of favourites for the year.

If you happen to be holidaying in Spain, you can actually book in to stay there. If you're interested, click here.
