From water cistern, to warehouse, to gorgeous glass house, Casa Aljibe is a unique sight in Alpredrete, a suburb outside of Madrid, Spain.
The original stone structure was built in 1955 to hold well water, but Madrid-based architects Valdivieso Arquitectos have transformed it into a gorgeous modern home. On the upper level, the curved wall of windows of the living and dining area overlook a central stone patio.
The lower level—which is the original cistern and former warehouse—consists of bedrooms and bathrooms. While it is partially buried, there is also a walk-out patio with a corrugated steel roof for much-needed shade.
