The Ibarrola Project in Garoza aims to recover an existing but underused cultural facility, to turn it into a cultural tourism facility that energizes the economy and culture of the province of Avila.
La Dehesa de Garoza is a mountain of oaks with livestock farm located in the town of Muñogalindo, opposite the Amblés Valley. Between 2005 and 2010 the Basque artist Agustin Ibarrola, invited by the owner of the Dehesa, made an artistic intervention painting 115 granitic rocks in an area of 11 hectares. This work has remained almost unknown until September 2015 when the Asocio Foundation of Avila opened the project, after signing an agreement with the artist, the owner of the property and the City Council, which undertook to carry out the work to adapt the pastureland to visitors and to manage the equipment. The intervention consisted in bringing a new driveway from the road, building a new access for livestock, hurdling the farm where the painted rocks are, building the Information Point and Foundation staff office, design and execute museology and perform the communication plan.
Sustainability in its four approaches has been the basis for intervention in such a sensitive environment as the existing one, the cultural component being especially important when dealing with the recovery of an artistic work, but also because it value cultural elements and identity of the place, such as extensive beef cattle, the pasture as landscape modified by man and other existing cultural resources in the Valley, as vetones forts and cave paintings. In addition, intervention integrates two existing resources in the village for a few years, the Cultural Hall located beneath the town hall and the gazebo. The project aims to revitalize the culture of the province, for its ability to attract visitors interested in culture, their potential synergies with other resources and schedule of activities. It also is expected to contribute to economic and social development of the region, affecting sectors such as hotel, rural tourism, catering, tourism businesses and trade of local products.
Regarding the environmental aspect has followed the approach to change as little as possible, both physically and visually the pasture and artistic work, keeping the livestock use, so that it remains with the use and physiognomy who found the artist before intervening. in this sense, they have avoided earthworks which would have altered the topography and natural runoff have been used local materials, existing energy prey in place and most of the waste is recycled in situ.
Following this line, the building Information Point wooden construyeen, prefabricated in workshop and then assembled in situ, slightly elevated above the ground to avoid changing the natural environment in its construction phase, use and removal, as a building perched on the floor. Laenvolvente has high levels of insulation and airtightness and the outer skin of the building is wooden flooring chestnut 90x20mm type S1, battens, forming a ventilated chamber that protects you from the sun and aging naturally no longer leading treatment chemical.
From the energy point of view the building is self-sufficient and local energy supplies, sun and biomass. By 14 photovoltaic panels that charge 24 batteries, system that allows a range of 2 days sun sinradiación, all electricity needs are covered. Ductable heating is a stove with built-in fan that uses the own wood of pruning of the pasture as biomass.

Owner approach of sustainability
The Asocio Ávila Foundation has been financing and advising public and private developers for 15 years. Their aim is to develope rural areas of their counties. This social, economic and cultural approach is accompanied by a special care for the environment and energy efficiency of the projects as a key aspect to their survival and the survival of the environment in which they are implanted.
In the overall performance and the design of the building, the approach was to change as little as possible, both physically and visually the pasture and artistic work, keeping the livestock use, so that it remains with the use and physiognomy he found the artist before intervening. In this sense, they have avoided earthworks which would have altered the topography and natural runoff. Local materials have been used, existing energy prey in place and most of the waste is recycled in situ. Following this line, the building Information Point is built in wood, prefabricated in workshop and then assembled in situ, slightly elevated above the ground to avoid changing the natural environment in its construction phase, use and disassembly, as a building perched on the floor. The envelope has high levels of insulation and airtightness and the exterior of the building is wooden flooring chestnut 90x20mm type S1, battens, forming a ventilated chamber that protects you from the sun and aging naturally since no chemical treatment was performed. From the energy point of view the building is self-sufficient and local energy supplies, sun and biomass. By 14 photovoltaic panels that charge 24 batteries, system that allows a range of 2 days without sunlight, all electricity needs are covered. Ductable heating is a stove with built-in fan that uses the own wood of pruning of the pasture as biomass.
