ONCESQUINAS

The group of houses called the Oncesquinas is located next to the gardened square known as Plaza de los Artistas, in the highest, most picturesque part of the town, with calm, pedestrian streets that take you back to times gone by.

The work on these houses began from very different starting points: some needed refurbishment and others had to be rebuilt. After the structural work each one required, the rest of the construction work was done according to the criteria in the General Characteristics section.

This project fully refurbished one of the oldest buildings in Calaceite, which was originally the Town Hall (it was last used for a public event in 1609). On a structural level, the project consisted in shoring up the fa├žades, removing the roof and framing and then rebuilding these structures. This painstaking refurbishment led to the creation of the Romero and Tomillo houses.

On the neighbouring property, we designed a project to rebuild the attached house next door. The work was done on the same site where the former house had been demolished, allowing us to use the stones discovered in the subfloor. This project gave rise to two houses, Lavender and Laurel, which have separate entrances from different streets.

The works lasted more than four years in total, as the buildings are located on pedestrian streets and the work was done artisanally. The project created one retail space and five houses, one yet to be finished. The retail space, which used to be the stables and wine cellar, has been transformed into a space to hold exhibitions and sell books and wine.
