The redevelopment project addresses the issue of the transformation of a disused barn, situated on the route leading out from the historical village centre, into a living space. The new architecture is related to the existing through a dialogue of tradition and contemporary, with the attention to a correct contextualization. The facades preserve the original stone structure, movable vertical blinds, made of oak planks, protect the large windows and draw images of light and shadows in the interior. Inside, the materials used, contemporary but not-compound and not-industrial, are: smooth concrete, raw solid oak wood and hand- treated welded steel. The atmosphere is achieved through the care and culture of the craft, and it is expressed in the designing of the details, in a homage to craftmanship, to know-how.
