The Empty House is a project designed by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos. Located on the main street of a town near Valencia, the house is part of a fragment of 20th century history.
The existing façade and building footprint are protected, but the volume exceeds the needs of the new project. Faced with this situation, it is proposed to empty the interior space in ruins and show it in an innovative way. From the outside, the façade maintains its character, without modifying the street, which becomes a kind of scenery from another era. The tone of this old façade is unified with an antelope gray treatment that goes completely unnoticed. Photography by Fernando Guerra.
