Between 1918 and 1920, Josep Lacambra decided to undertake work to expand the factory that ended with the construction of the house designed as a family home together with the factory building.
This work required the increase of the area of the colony with the purchase of two plots of land to complete the current area of the complex. The building was erected next to the road leading to the factory.
At present, it is the headquarters of Fundació La Farga, the corporate offices of La Farga and the Copper Museum.
Refurbishment of the building cost 1.5 million euros.
