Le projet a reçu multiples désignations; réhabilitation, altération, extension, transformation et régénération. La première phase de construction a été inaugurée en 2007 et la seconde en 2014. Dès la première esquisse, le projet visait à valoriser les expressions de la culture locale et à adopter une empreinte écologique

Avant d’intervenir sur le site, il fallait connaître le lieu, découvrir quels matériaux ont été utilisés dans chaque époque… Au fil du temps, les bâtiments ruraux sont occupés par de nombreuses générations, par conséquent, ils regorgent d’une connaissance précise de la géographie et des conditions météorologiques locales. De mauvaises solutions, qui devaient aussi exister, ont entre-temps été améliorées ou remplacées afin que les bâtiments ou les ruines contiennent des connaissances approfondies testées au fil des générations.
