Huerta house Architecture

House in la “huerta”

The “huerta” of Murcia is the river flood-plain, with fertile arable land, usually planted with orange and lemon trees, and is very characteristic of the region.

The building occupies the south facade of the plot, with the garden to the north. The living room and kitchen on the ground floor, open out to the garden with large doors. The bedrooms on the first floor have large openings that are shielded from outside view and from noise by the terrace parapet, while allowing views of the “huerta”.
