Exquisite Interior Design Within a 12th Century Oil Mill
Thursday June 2 2011
Located in Extramadura, a community of western Spain, this amazing building was first constructed by the Jerónimo monks in the 12th century and later became an oil mill. Due to its historic value, its original architecture was kept intact. In order to rehabilitate the building and transform it into a proper living space, the current owners transmitted their request to architect Ricardo Elizondo, who reinvented the space, after almost two decades of utter neglect. Found on Nuevo Estilo, this fabulous crib characterized by austere lines and natural materials is bold and dramatic, making it a perfect home for lovers of genuine experiences. Colorful materials give the place an inviting touch, while iron and steel elements make an intriguing contrast with the old brick walls. Vintage furniture is aesthetically mixed with modern wooden items and paintings liven the heavy atmosphere. We absolutely love seeing old buildings having kept their architecture in such a creative manner, don’t you?
