The main goal of this renovation project was to demonstrate that traditional techniques, using local materials handled by craftspeople, are today a viable solution to the current sustainability challenge. The project of Can Buch has consisted of adapting the farmhouse for rural tourism and converting the former barn into the owner's house. The aim of the tourist facility is to provide income to the owner's family and at the same time an educational venue for customers, an environment for reconnecting with nature.
