The project involved enlarging a house built by the Americans in the vicinity of the US military base at Rota, on the coast of the southern Spanish province of Cádiz. The urban development it is located in responds to a typically Anglo-Saxon set of tastes: plots clustered organically around valuable specimens of the preexisting pine forest, and connected to a main street. Discreet residences have been built in the neighborhood which are directly inspired in vernacular tradition. This particular enlargement respects the scheme of the original dwelling and replicates the general layout while transforming the old rooms into patios. The result is a coherent and balanced whole. Continuity is also what governs the choice of finishes: the simple whitewashed surfaces, the efficient shades on the facade, and the warm-toned wooden flooring all contribute to reinforcing the Mediterranean character of the complex.
