"The project is proposed as the contemporary continuation of the traditional Basque farmhouse, whose codes of the past and community values that emerged a solid rural identity are revalidated by the incursion of technology at all levels of our life, which have diluted productive spaces in the domesticity of the home and enhanced citizen collaboration networks. Not only constructive honesty and respectful reading of the natural environment of the traditional farmhouse serve as references, but also the participatory self-management of community spaces and neighborhood ties that in general around the new productive activities of the domestic space."
