The Caserío Gernika is a building of unique characteristics of scale, volumetry and materials that, though it cannot strictly be listed as a monument, possesses notable constructional value as a representative element of the architecture made in Vitoria at the start of the century. These circumstances have caused it to be included in the category of "Structural Conservation" by the General Plan of Vitoria-Gasteiz. The effort put into the proposal has interpreted the existing elements to adapt them to the needs of the present, understanding the simple three-dimensional order of the built volumes as a contraposition between two types of architectural languages: more classic for the noble building and contemporary for the annexe. This is a forceful yet serene and respectful intervention that has the only objective of recovering the original nobility of the old principal building and its tree-lined surroundings.
