Villa Slow by Laura Alvarez Architecture

Villa Slow by Laura Alvarez Architecture

Laura Alvarez Architecture recently completed 'Villa Slow,' a new holiday rental retreat in Cantabria, Spain.

The typology of the home is based on a traditional construction of the area called 'cabaƱa pasiega' (peasant cabin) but with a contemporary twist. The strategic location of the construction, on top of a little hill facing south, grants impressive views towards the valley and from the mountain.

The scheme of the house is simple. Two big panoramic windows in the living room facing opposite directions create a beautiful scenography of mountains, clouds, and trees. These two openings allow to enjoy the impressive views towards the valley and mountains from the spacious living room in the centre of the house.
