What dreams are made of located in Peratallada, Spain, Peratallada Castle (2015) by MESURA. The three horizontal platforms of Turkish white stone combine with the vertical concrete walls with wood texture finish: the horizontal plane is confirmed by assembling pieces, the vertical plane is built by a continuous formless material. The stone pavement is composed of pieces of 7cm to 15cm width; this is possible by reusing some stock waste of material of one local quarry. The stock had many different pieces sizes, having to draw each stone one by one of the whole project as a big puzzle. The special pieces of the water drain or the shower, in order to understand the natural movement of the water by the gravity, sculpt pieces with modern CNC machines, merging tradition with innovation. The mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering are perfectly integrated with the design, like the lighting and the plugs are built-in the stone bench, or in the stair lighting is built-in the steel rail section.

 

 

 


The main actor of the intervention is the pool, a sheet of water permanently moving, the amazing surroundings play a big role in the reflexion of the water and the sound creates a magic atmosphere. The water overflow, a cascade over the concrete wall. Looking forward to producing a sustainable garden, the entire project is conceived to recollect the rainwater, even from the house roof, and recollect it in a medieval well dig out in the natural stone soil, more than 30 ft (9 meters) above the ground level. This well is used to water all the plants of the garden.
