The project was developed based on the idea of restoring and safeguarding the pre-existing farmstead by turning the space available into several housing units.
Therefore, we decided to restore and maintain the original facades, which were consolidated and cleaned by preserving the materials and the original aesthetics.
In order to respect the longstanding tradition of the area, we opted for a terracotta-coloured facade and decided to employ non-industrial mortar composed of a mixture of sand and clay, lime putty and white binder.
All new wooden parts were reproduced and are identical to the originals, the covering was made by using tiles recovered from the existing one.
The original farmstead featured a large courtyard, which was rebuilt by maintaining the large stone and brick entrance way, recreated with materials recovered from the demolition of the original courtyard.
The original farmstead was enlarged by adding a traditional contemporary new structure, perfectly balanced with the existing building.
