An explicit marriage between the ancient and the present intertwines building materials like concrete, metal, wood, stone. Industrial roofing and steel beams are bold and define the space as adaptable. The M house as it is called is sandwiched between a row of residents aging gracefully in the village of La Nou de Gaia, Spain. The construction by MDBA, Guallart Architects leaves clean finishes, with floating staircases and tremendous windows to reach the generous ceiling heights. However, the most pivotal amenity directs your attention to the amazing view of the landscape coined Els masos de Vespella. The backside of the home extends every floor into an opportunity to take in its spectacular sunsets with multiple terraces and a large patio.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
