30 dwellings in Ribadeo

Building

Differing from some of the neighbouring buildings we opted for a more adequate scale for a village, respecting the profile of the historic center of Ribadeo. The fragmented disposition makes it possible that the sunshine reaches everywhere and that all the homes offer exquisite views over the river and the neighboring villages Figueras and Castropol. The materials used will be locally sourced and slate will be used for the roofs, capturing the character of the inclined covers, which are signature of the region.
