Casal Saloio de Outeiro de Polima是为数不多的记录该地区最初占领情况的例子之一。这是一个古老而简陋的农村房屋,随着时间的推移,它经历了连续的变化和扩展,直到现在被改造成一个博物馆空间。

The Casal Saloio de Outeiro de Polima is one of the few examples that document the first occupations of this territory. It is an old and humble rural house that has undergone successive changes and expansions over time until it is now transformed into a museum space.


In its genesis it was just a simple compartment, then it gained an annex room, then a side wing, a stone oven, the corral, and the second floor, and again more other annexes. At one point two buttresses were added to contain structural problems. The constructive logic has always been that of informality and the mere supply of needs.


With so many layers of transformations, it was decided to consolidate the old rural house in its last recognizable configuration, being able to read its evolution through the broken and uneven geometry. The new expansion consists of two new volumes intersecting in an L, forming a courtyard with the existing set and adopting a similar shape and scale, continuing, now in the XXI century, the logic of successive expansions and intersections that characterize it.
