Corten Steel in House

Corten-A Corten steel is a meterial which oxidates in a short term period, in order to create its own protection, neutralizing its deterioration,due to strong weather resistance of weathering steel.
Corten steel walls, a circular window and a big cross all feature in this house renovated by Raúl Sánchez Architects for a winery in Catalonia.
Called Gallery House, the two-storey property functions as both a guesthouse and gallery for the Mas Blanch i Jové winery in La Pobla de Cérvoles.
Barcelona-based Sánchez planned his renovation around a series of cutaways, all designed to make the interior of the house more sculptural.
A large cross-shaped opening was created through the centre of the house, connecting the two floors and offering a sense of drama.
