Peraleda House is a comprehensive rebuild, keeping part of the original walls of the existing house and the yard, located in a small and historic town in Cáceres. The project aims to think about how to revive an existing house into a contemporary home in a classic urban area setting with restrictive rules.


To do that, two distinct elements are combined. On the one hand, a stone element as the ordinances dictate that lays the base of the house span the entrance and give access to the home through metal doors. On the other hand, a sinuous line crosses the night areas and the pool and forms the inner courtyard.


This duality provides two types of facades: an introverted one with metallic and flared openings respond to those of a church across the street; and the other one is extroverted with large openings that let in light through the courtyard.


Strategies:
1. Access to the House through the hallway that the stone masonry conforms to.
2. Introverted-facades avoiding the views of neighbors and outgoing-facade that illuminates the interior.
3. Enter from the hallway through metal doors to the daily areas.

Peraleda House es una reforma integral, manteniendo parte de los muros originales de la vivienda existente y el patio, situada en un pequeño pero histórico pueblo cacereño. El proyecto trata de pensar como rehabilitar una casa existente construyendo una vivienda contemporánea en un entorno clásico de restrictiva normativa urbana.


Para ello se maclan dos piezas bien diferenciadas. Por un lado, un elemento pétreo como dictan las ordenanzas que establece la base de la vivienda, acoge el zaguán de entrada y da acceso al hogar mediante portelas metálicas. Por otro, una línea quebrada que cose las estancias nocturnas y la piscina y conforma el patio interior.


Esta dualidad concede dos tipos de fachadas: una introvertida con aperturas metálicas y abocinadas que hacen referencia a las ventanas de la iglesia situada enfrente; y otra extrovertida con grandes aperturas que introduce la luz a través del patio.


Estrategias
1. Acceso a la vivienda a través del zaguán que forma la mampostería de piedra.
2. Fachada introvertida que evita las vista de vecinos y fachada extrovertida que ilumina el interior.
3. Acceso desde el zaguán a las estancias de día a través de unas portelas metálicas.
