Camino de la meseta, Gorafe, Province Granada, Spain

Description

Located in the middle of the Gorafe desert, this unique building is perfectly integrated into this unique natural environment. A fully glazed and self-sufficient design house, able to withstand the large thermal variations that can reach up to 30º in a single day thanks to its thermal crystals that do not allow the passage of cold or heat, offering a comfortable place from which to enjoy the breathtaking views of the desert and the stars. Through solar panels located on the roof, solar energy is stored in accumulators, which provide electricity, as well as heating the shower water. The water is collected from the rain and channeled to a tank that includes a filtering system to make it drinkable, the waste from the bathroom goes to a biologically active septic tank transforming it into liquid fertilizer that returns back to the ground. It is therefore a totally self-sufficient and environmentally friendly home. A fully equipped home in the middle of the desert to disconnect. INTERIORS It consists of a total area of 20m2 distributed in 3 glazed modules. One of these modules consists of the bedroom with a large double bed, the second module includes a large shower and access to the bathroom that is located in the center and the third module includes a small seating area with a pair of designer armchairs and the entrance of the house. Around the perimeter of the house, we have a small shaded porch ideal for summer evenings to contemplate the sky in its entirety.
