Stone Ruin Transformed Into Zero-Energy Villa

Villa Slow, a vacation home in Spain by Laura Álvarez Architecture, is built in the place of an old stone ruin. It is designed to have minimal impact on its environment through use of high quality insulation, and an air-heat pump that produces five kilowatts of energy for every kilowatt that it takes from the network. The designers wanted Villa Slow to be visually simple and well balanced. On its exterior, the designers accomplished a simple look through natural materiality, including a slate roof, rough stone walls and large windows with wood frames and doors. On the interior, simplicity is achieved with a bright, minimal and calm atmosphere that focuses attention on the outdoor views.
