Aulets Architecture is a Spanish architecture studio, that dedicates to projects and research on the architecture, landscape and territory. Presented here is their renovation of an oenological station, located in Felanitx, Spain.
The starting point of the project by Aulets consisted in conserving every constructive element that was in a good condition, such as the masonry walls, the stairs, both the interior and exterior handrails and an ancient concrete basin, as well as the hydraulic tiles and the windows.
"Once the constructive pre-existences have been defined, they become the ones that define and configure the interior space, providing them with the prominence their presence imposes, neither altering nor adding elements that undermine them. The used materials accompany the pre-existences in order to reinforce their presence in the project. For instance, the concrete slab for the first floor and the wooden roof are supported by the masonry walls," explained the architects.
