within the town of sant climenç in the pinell del solsonès region of spain, the 'rural guest house' by girona-based
practice 05 AM arquitectura offers visitors to the countryside a temporary shelter. maintaining the original character
and supporting a limited budget, an old dwelling was adapted into a modern accommodation with updated amenities.
making use of an interior brick divider, steel plates are inserted into every third course and affixed to the opposing wall
forming an open-riser staircase. the same technique was also implemented for shelving along the metal fireplace.
the white ceiling made from a series of inverted concrete vaults integrates up-lighting fixtures by concealing a bulb with a
curved panel. a modest stair formed with oriented strand board leads from the bedroom to a level added during the refurbishment.
