We propose to be rehabilitated by a small traditional construction of the rural Galician as headquarters of the foundation.
We act delicately; we consolidate walls, re-put the cover of tile and locate an adapted bathroom. Saneamos and we paint white the interior, begin some paraments and re-put the carpentry of wood.
We re-use the intermediate girders of wood as support of the new lighting.
The pavement of granite and the auctions of black varnished steel complete the action.
The new public use prevents us from supporting both previous heights, to the being the low one dedicated to stables in the past, the particularly low. This way, the zone of access acquires a height of four meters, probably more according to his function dotacional.
On the bathroom we can locate the machinery of air conditioning and unify the chimney of ventilation with the lucernario that illuminates it. Other rooms lose height depending on his adjustment to the area.
There is kept the exterior, interesting vestibule in a rainy climate as the Galician, with the attached store. The flexibility foreseen in the rest of the building allows us, with a simple intervention, to favor the future use as small center of rural dynamization: chats, exhibitions, leisure, advice ….
