The Nostra Llar neighborhood is located as a small oasis in the middle of Sabadell’s dense industrial fabric. Constructed in 1954, these isolated houses were originally designed to provide a decent place to live for the workers of the textile factory ARTÈXTIL. The development also planned the construction of several facilities: two schools, a church, a park and a currently abandoned SWIMMING POOL. This sports facility has now become property of the local government who, together with the Nostra Llar neighbors, have requested to the Valles School of Architecture the design of the its reconditioning.

Las cuevas del caño de Hierro, que antiguamente se utilizaban como refugio y como almacén de excedente agrícola, estuvieron sepultadas bajo runa y maleza durante largas décadas, y sólo se mantuvieron vivas en el recuerdo de los mayores del lugar. Nos hablan de otros tiempos, otros ritmos, otra manera de vivir. Su puesta en valor se enmarca en una operación que tiene el objetivo de recuperar el patrimonio de Hornachuelos para sus vecinos y reivindicar su enorme riqueza natural, histórica y arquitectónica.
