The subject of this diploma thesis is an already existing Cortijo, in spanish for farm, situatet on the long distance route called Gran Recorrido 7, in the Sierra Nevada mountains in the Andalucian Granada. Thsi mountainious area is becoming an increasingly important place for hiking and cultural trips. The aim is to allow the soasonally used building stock with an extension, to give it a new interpretation and a year-round use. With consciously set bodies, a unit is created from several individual parts, which ts into the culture and landscape of the region. For the design, the historically grown, vernacular architectural mechanisms of construction with a focus on Andalusia are pursued and applied with well placed interventions. The work is divided into four major chapters, which lead through a journey through the architectural elements of the Mediterranean. These chapters describe the main elements of traditional Mediterranean architecture, starting with the place, the types of construction and the open spaces. Since the ancient cultures in the Mediterranean area have developed in close connection with the network of paths, they represent the nal chapter. Each of these chapters discusses the basic theme of the Mediterranean area while applying it to the project. In this way, an approach emerges in which the context is treated and elaborated simultaneously to gain a better understanding of those decisions that determine the architectural body, such as location, volumetry, or structure. A melancholy journey that leads through the Mediterranean Sea into many dierent angles, through countless cultures and times, accompanies the design, which is a resume of this journey and should accompany everyone on their own journey.
