In the gates of one of the oldest territories in Europe, Rubielos de Mora, the entrance of Aragón, holds a rural house, that is both an architecture and design treasure. The location couldn’t be more perfect, as the place where it is located has different nominations as the Europa Nostra Award and also, the award of one of the “Most Beautiful Villages in Spain”.

The house perfectly illustrates the traditional Vernacular architecture in Rubielos. From iron fittings to wood and stonework, all these techniques combined in one work, make this project timeless and where tradition is elevated.

 

 

With a very clean and simplistic aesthetic, this interior is truly a magnificent feat. The balance between elements, in which the woods and sombre tones create a real modern vibe, over the stone works that provide the architecture of this house with such a rural and classic feeling. The entrance welcomes every visitor with a classic from Boca do Lobo, the Apollo Mirror. The frame of this modern design mirror is totally sublime with the involved ornate carvings. The exterior frame, made from solid oak wood or mahogany and in a gold leaf finish.

Matching the outside, the inside is equally rustic, but at the same time contemporary and elegant. With its assumed Iberian style, the interior courtyard has been created as a private universe where the house opens to. Displayed in layers, the house’s first floor contains the daytime rooms, as it is more open. The second floor is more private and holds the rooms. It’s on the first floor where lays the living room, one of the iconic divisions of the “casa montañesa”.

Still in the living room, there’s a small reading corner, where Delightfulls mid-century modern vibe enters in perfect unison with the rest of the furniture pieces in this area. The resting armchair already possesses a mid-century feel to it, but with Sinatra Floor Lamp this otherwise simple reading corner is turned into a sophisticated relaxing area as well. The other rooms follow this simple modern aesthetic, with black being the main theme to connect with all the rooms and the reuse of very idyllic elements.

The dining area and kitchen share the same open space area, where a breath-taking view over the patio. Is the perfect scenery for a sublime dinner party or a calm and long late breakfast. The kitchen features a kitchen island, that serves both as a preparation station and sink but as a counter as well. The rural looking hoven and stove, complemented with the copper kitchen items decorating the walls, elevate this kitchen to an even more sophisticated level. The Nuka Counter Stool and Dining Chairs are the two items that play an important role in displaying the uniqueness and the classic elements in a very modern area. The Nuka family came to life inspired by the Nuka glacier in Alaska, upholstered in soft velvet with a nail trim in polished gold. A chic detail that will not go unnoticed.
