During its more than 100 years old life, the building suffered several interventions that debilitated its structure, jeopardizing its stability.

Our first intervention was to reinforce and sustain the building and to create a sustainable model to the renovation to achieve a positive environmental and social impact using several disappearing crafts, traditional carpentry and natural building materials such as wood, earth, straw and lime that are low carbon emissivity. The result is a space made with materials and textures that are flexible, porous and breathable, following its main function of creating comfort among its inhabitants.
