Casa Tmolo used to be a neglected farmer house in a deplorable, half-ruined state before architects from PYO Arquitectos bureau turned it into the charming out-of town residence. They changed the main house and granary to the modern constructions. Facades were totally renovated with the use of local stone and concrete. At that the designers preferred to keep general shapes of the old buildings and built modern thermal insulation in the walls. The windows are closed by wooden shutters, which are performed in the same style as the entrance door. The house is located at the hillside, therefore the difference in the floor level of some premises is around two meters. The interior is created as premises, which consequently replace each other and have floors of different level. Old internal walls were partially removed, which allowed to create big living room, filled with sunny rays. The interior has been formed around four vertical elements in a form of diamonds. Bedrooms overlook the shared terrace with marvelous views on the surroundings. The former granary now accommodates the lounge zone at the first floor and the bedroom upstairs.
