Architecture Monday

Another lovely restored medieval tower in Spain tonight!  A singular fortified tower once again accessible via a refined new structure within.

Done with precision, the new wood and steel staircase and platforms is a delight, with its sharp angles and regular pattern contrasting with the rough adobe walls of the tower, while at the same time the wood complements the earthen hues.  Best of all, the lattice allows for dramatic light to splay down from above.

And you gotta love the off-kilter arrow slit windows!

Simple but lovely.  The aptly named Tower Castle of Espioca, with restoration and new frame by El fabricante de epheras.  Complement it with this other tower/keep restoration I talked about earlier, also in Spain!
