The original mid-19th century building and its more recent single-storey extension were in ruins and only the perimeter masonry walls, up to a metre deep, could be preserved. The roof structure, as well as the internal structural elements, had collapsed due to the fact that the building had been abandoned for a long time.
Being a building in ruins and having a certain freedom in terms of design and materials, the reconstruction project presented the opportunity to restore the traditional typology of the site by eliminating all conflicting architectural elements. The design of the project is presented as a contemporary, minimalist architecture that integrates with the formal and volumetric aspects of its architectural context.
The roof, with a wooden structure, is covered with flat ceramic roof tiles in reddish tones.
