The new intervention is not intended to be a break with the building's history, but rather a transformation. It is considered that there is an image of “heritage” that should be preserved, as in addition to the existing house showing some architectural value, it also presents an enormous sentimental value for the family that lived there for several generations.


However, these days, this image is distorted, as there is a lot of surrounding noise, generated mainly by the large cellar glued to the west facade of the house.
