"Beizama is surrounded by small productive nodes such as txakoli and cider wineries, timber productions, cheese farms and crops, that are interrelated in order to generate a circular economy using their natural environment. We understood, that instead of forcing a program for the productive spaces, we should create a flexible system capable of mutating and adapting according to the current social and economic needs of the village and its residents."
