The pityusic farmer’s house is defined, among other things, by its gradual and modular growing process and its deep rooting in its territory. The intervention on the remains of Ca Na Francisca Castellona, an example of the most basic stage of this traditional typology, considers both aspects.
The project recovers the less spoiled area, maintaining the derelict walls as an enclosure for the exterior living space. The main extension is added toward the northern side, through two bedroom and one living room units, following the directrix of the former cattle enclosure. A guest house is planned on the southern area.
