For a long time the historical building was inhabited by a priest before then for 30 years was empty and finally to become the dwelling for a couple with their three sons. For the young family Arrokabe Arquitectos designed bright living and sleeping rooms on four floors. For the redesign of the old house the historic facade remained unchanged on the street side. Also, all bearing walls remain and have been supplemented subtly inside by a light timber frame construction. A key element of the house is the new staircase, which was placed after the restoration to its original location.
