Converting the once-private residence was more an act of preservation than of transformation. Dreimeta design studio highlighted the structure’s weather-worn imperfections, imbuing the space with an aching elegance.

 
 
 


Marked by classical Iberian architecture and traces of Moorish influences, the public spaces, nine guestrooms and freestanding guesthouse feature arched walls and dark-wood beamed ceilings and doors, accented by hammered iron doorknobs and fixtures. Communal spaces, including the kitchen and pool, bring likeminded guests together, while cozy nooks are found inside and out for moments of simple solitude.
 

 
 
The art of imperfect beauty is accepting the natural cycle of growth and decay. Using flawed and scarred materials and surfaces we’ve alluded to the enigma of time passing.
