Project: Restoration of a rural construction
Developer: Mercè Nabau
Architect: Maite Sainz de la Maza Benet. Fetdeterra
Engineering geologist: Macari de Torres. Fetdeterra
Date and location: December 2016. Mollerussa
The construction is located in a rustic land that has not been developed, where the volume of the building is respected, consolidated and rehabilitated. It is thermally improved by adding insulation on the roof, and the enclosure walls are cleaned, replacing the portland cement mortar with a lime mortar and silicate paints, compatible with the earth walls. A new access to the upper floor is made through a ladder of folded sheet metal floating and anchored to the wall.
