A-cero presents one of its most rural areas: the reform and expansion of a set consisting of a few blocks to cattle sheds, warehouses and garages of gear laborers. The house is located on a farm of nearly 351 hectares on the outskirts of Avila. Consists of significant areas of grassland in the south, while the remainder have a significant mass of trees of various species such as chestnut, oak, pine, etc.. Its fauna consists in most wild boar, deer, roe deer and other species. This is precisely one of the reasons why the client wanted the game to become a fundamental part of the housing program.
With such a wealth and variety of flora and fauna in the same plot where the house stood, became almost need or demand from all parts of the building could easily access outside.
