Holiday house in Platja d’Aro by Pepe Gascón

Holiday house in Platja d’Aro is a project designed by Pepe Gascón and is located in Platja d’Aro, Costa Brava (Girona), España. Photography by Aitor Estévez.

“This holiday home, of a Mediterranean character, was built half a century ago using traditional Catalan construction methods. It has been refurbished and modernised internally to increase natural light. The kitchen and porch have been extended to create a courtyard to connect the interior living areas with the outdoor. This offers shade and the addition of a pool completes the integration of these areas.
The project maintains several original features such as course renders on the exterior and parabolic arches. To respect the home´s heritage, handmade clay tiles have been fitted in the courtyard and on internal staircases.
White has been used to preserve its Mediterranean ambience.”
