Light And Dark In A Spanish Mountain Home

Gravity Home: Mountain Home in Spain

This granite stone house in the mountains in Spain was completely derelict when architect Jesus Colao of Schneider Colao started designing. The original plan was to transform this 1950s home into a white box. In the end Jesus worked with light and dark so perfectly it almost looks like a Vermeer painting. The chestnut panelling give the home a typical mountain ‘chalet-style’. The modern skylights and white floor truly enlightens the home, bringing the perfect balance between light and dark. To finish it off, they decided to decorate the home with 1950s furniture in popping colours. But only the essential furniture was allowed in the home it only had to answer a very simple question: Do you need it?

  1. From someone who grew up in a wood paneled home, I could NEVER do it. It will get old soooo fast. An accent wall, fine, but a whole wood paneled house will look very dated and in particular this space in about 5 years. Would have been gorgeous in concrete, but this no gonna be dated very quickly.
