HOW IS THE CENTER?

The center is built from the regeneration of an industrial livestock farm in a series of organic buildings in dialogue with the natural environment. Constructed from natural and local materials, it creates warm interior spaces that are ideal for home study and reception.

Passive solar, organic, bioclimatic and solar buildings are energy-efficient and minimize the carbon footprint in both construction and use. Wastewater creates new wetland habitats and is reused for irrigation. The landscape integration and the distribution of the equipment invite regenerative walks around.

WHAT'S AN ORRI?

Orri is a rustic building for storing agricultural products. In the Pyrenees it means shepherd’s hut. It is a word that reflects life in common in the summer pastures, when they were a meeting point and an exchange between people. It comes from the Latin horreum “barn”. The Center takes this word for its meanings of communion between man and nature, of coexistence, of international exchange and of reservoir of the seeds that will germinate a new future.
