108ERA is a stunning stone farmhouse located in Granera, Spain. Designed by Vallribera Arquitectes in 2022, this traditional real estate offers the perfect blend of old and new.
With its back to the street and half underground, the house is surrounded by woodlands and a garden that hides beneath a large oak tree. Inside, the building maintains its structure of loadbearing walls, preserving the existing distribution of bedrooms and creating large openings on the south façade to blur the boundaries between the inside and outside. The walls are restored using local stone, and the roof collects rainwater for irrigation of the garden.
