In order consisted of the preparation and extension of the premises, so that, in addition to the preparation and celebration of the eel party, it functions as a multipurpose space for conducting activities and meetings by the neighborhood association itself or other activities than the own city council could carry out, such as courses or gastronomic days, to being the unique social premises available in the nucleus of Barral to borders of the Miño river.

Energy efficiency as an action strategy. In addition, the insulation of the roof with ecological cork panels and the facades with thermo-clay allows for an energy improvement.

In terms of construction systems and materials, we opt for bioconstruction, using materials from the area, which are also the traditional materials, to favor the local economies (cork panels, thermo-clay, mortars of ecological natural lime, mineral paints, wood with FSC stamp, etc.

 The intervention seeks a construction with zero carbon footprint, with the use of raw materials just treated, to achieve ecological construction systems.

The optimization of natural resources (enlargement of existing windows that allow the maximum use of natural light), is one of the measures adopted in this project. The roof was waterproofed and a drainage well made to collect rainwater from the gargoyles.
