Refurbishment project built with 18,000€ budget that aims to bring empty homes back into use for people in housing need, which is a huge problem right now at tourist areas like Mallorca island. 12,000€ have been used for energy efficienty improvement (roof insulation and biomass stove) and 6,000€ for indoor rehabilitation. The project has been made with an urban sharecropping contract, paying rent for 3 years through the work, part of which has been done by self-construction. In order to be able to refurbish a 100 square meters dwelling with this amount, we worked along these lines:

1. NOT TO DO, as the best way to do.

2. DOMESTIC ARCHEOLOGY, to learn how economy of means has built our cities for centuries.

3. BACK TO ARCH, as a way to open spaces without adding any kind of new material. To open a door is not the same than to build a door.
