Heated pool. Projected concrete. Tosca house.

This is the month of our heated pools and the projected concrete. Same technique as we used in the previous article about our heated pool. The first one is located at one of the highest points facing the Javea bay with panoramic views. On the other hand, this one is located in the old town that lets you move back in time to the 12th century surrounded by historical walls that were in state of ruin, and that have been restored with traditional methods.  Thanks to this technique, with the projected concrete we could achieve the desired shape, due to the fact that this conctrete is easily attached to the application surface.

Checking new roof

  It was very important to check the correct execution of the roof. Because it is made of Thermochip panels it is not necessary to use a vapor barrier. The insulation incorporated in the panels is extruded polystyrene with no air interstice. Nevertheless, the water proof layer had to be breathable to control condensation. In this case we used the brand Tyvec that works very well.

Lime mortar grouting

Lime mortar grouting. Purely artesanal work done with art and dedication. No wall is similar to the other. Creativity is the clue to create harmony in each and every stone that form each wall without hiding its history. First the existing grouting or plaster layer is removed. Then Tosca is washed with water pressure. After that grouting is done only with lime mortar. We found Tapial Wall from the 12th century with high archaeological interest. This was restored with special care and restoration methods.

Archaeological excavation ready to be started

As good as a good canvas for a painter. This project on a Javea oldtown house is ready to be started. A house full of history and a project deeply made, thought with the pencil and the models. Very soon we will commence the archaeological excavation as this building is located over an archaeological site.

First step was visiting the site several times to feel the place and then take measurements. Now we are being documented and inspired by accumulated experiences to reach the project concept. The most beautiful part, the creative part. This is only the beginning of a very exciting process. Sirine Ghadban
