2022 Works of Wonder: Ca’n Terra | Architectural Digest
Husband-and-wife architects Antón García-Abril and Débora Mesa, of Madrid- and Boston-based Ensamble Studio, have taken adaptive reuse to new heights—and depths. Their Ca’n Terra (“House Belonging to the Earth” in Catalan) carves a residence out of and into an abandoned 19th-century sandstone mine on the Mediterranean island of Menorca. Reminiscent of Egyptian tombs and Native American cliff dwellings, the home blurs the distinction between indoors and out, organic and manufactured, wild and domestic.
