Excited to have found some new favorite architects, first noticed via DesireToInspire.
Abaton are based in Madrid and I quote.... 

'Since 1998 dedicated to architectural projects, ÁBATON also deals with property development and construction.

Our aim is to achieve excellence in each stage of the project. Our line of work is based on; good departmental communication, the permanent pursuit of innovation; the incorporation of technological enhancements, and the excellent coordination of a highly qualified administrative team. All these elements are the pillars that sustain the high quality of what we produce and what give us our recognized status.

ÁBATON has been recently awarded 3 national prizes for Best Property Development.'

And of the project:
'322m2. 5ha. Country House.

Located in a privileged environment in the province of Cáceres, the goal was to transform an abandoned stable into a family home by completely renovating it in a way that would be consistent and respectful with the environment.

Problems relating to the electricity and water supply were solved through sustainability systems which ABATON uses in all its projects: a solar panel system with storage batteries was developed to supply energy during the summer; turbines were installed taking advantage of the course of the two streams that run through the estate providing electricity for the winter.'
