Newly totally refurbished 3 bedroom ruin which will have a modern and contemporary feel yet will still be full of traditional Moorish architectural features with total respect for its historic origins.
With Arabic arches at the entrances of the former Mezquita still evident, the property was previously a Moorish house of worship, then a catholic one and later transformed into an olive oil mill with the original press and grinder still in evidence. These features remain intact in the design.
The arches in the facade are restored to its former glory. The eye-catcher though, will now be the top floor. It will be installed like a box that seems to float on a small layer of metal and glass on top of the existing structure.
The striking windows' design base are traditional Arabic coffered ceilings.
The stone and brick masonry in combination with wood give this large single nave building great architectural solidity. Now, those traditional materials will be united by steel, metal, glass, concrete and ceramic.
Inside, the architect aimed to keep a fluid distribution within the existing structure. The central open space will be maintained with an entrance on one side and a kitchen on the other. These will be separated from the central area with glass walls underneath the existing structural arches. The living room will take up a double height so the vertical part made of natural stone contrasts with the horizontal concrete slabs. In the double floor living room, a metal staircase will connect the top floor. Here there will be a large landing, that can serve either as office space, a second living room or as a 4th bedroom. Above the entrance and above the kitchen there will be 2 double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and walk in wardrobes.
The building structure that communicates with the main one will get a makeover. It will be turned into a white-box-like building that will emphasise the traditional features of the main building. Here, there will be a pantry next to the kitchen, a guest bathroom and a master bedroom with walk in wardrobes and a private Andalusian patio and bathroom.
The plot in front of the mezquita will be raised to the main entrance. This makes it possible to install a garage and to accommodate a swimming pool.
This stunning makeover is an exciting and turnkey building project waiting for its inspired owner.
