This recent renovation was undertaken by FFWD Arquitectes in 2016. This 122-meter-squared home in Barcelona, Spain, attempts to maintain a certain enchantment to the space, as well as its singularity. The most striking aspect of this structure is its brick walls, aged away through the years, as well as its wood ceiling with metal beams, which had been previously damaged by a termite infection and were a risk to the structure as well as its occupants.

Our dreams are a reality in this beautiful house designed by Cibinel Architecture on the coast of Victoria Beach, Canada, an exclusive place for nature lovers.
