Refuge in Altis Mountain

The lodge stands on the former site of a   traditional farm building, in a preserved area called Altis, in Vistahermosa del Río. A simple, natural palette of materials is proposed to harmonise with the stunning setting—a pine forest in the heart of the mountains of Castellón. Natural materials, including wood and raw stone, help to root the building in their surroundings, while openings offer different vistas.The design takes advantage of the slope of the mountain and divides the building into smaller sections to integrate it into the landscape. The main functions are displayed all together on the ground floor: the dining-room, the kitchen and terrace, the bathrooms and a bedroom for 16 people. The lower floor, which is partially cut into the landscape, contains the machine room and a water tank. On the first floor there are extra bedrooms.The outlook terrace creates a harmonious environment to discover the special character of the site. See more
