Constituting a 2009 project by Sonia Miralles Mud, this residence is a modern residence that was created from a converted tool shed which has been cleverly designed to maximize the space.
It is located in Alicante, Spain, and together with cypresses, poplars, pines, elms, orange, mulberry, and olive trees, the modern residence will appear as another element in the landscape.
The modern residence, of course, has various different parts including a green roof, double walls, as well as cross ventilation that bring back the temperature and the atmosphere of old Spanish country houses.
In this modern residence, the economic effort is focused on the construction of the green roof and it is a rewarding and worthy expense since the insulating soil on the roof, the double walls, and openings that face each other create an ideal climate both in the winter and summer, thus, helping save energy.
Of course, there are various interesting things about this modern residence and here are some of them.
