The project translates into a recognizable “graft”: a dark volume, characterized by large windows overlooking the garden, crosses the cottage from the street to the back. The differences in level inherited from the existing distribution are integrated into a lively design and highlighted with different materials and colours.
The entrance opens onto a large living room, paved with anthracite-coloured stoneware, in continuity with the outside.
An oak platform – at the height of the present apartment – raises the spaces for conversation in a more intimate environment and serves as a filter for the sleeping area. The garden “enters” the house: the dining room and the kitchen enjoy it directly thanks to a full-height window that allows you to enjoy light and green in summer as well as in winter.
The cellar has been restored for the exclusive use of the owner’s apartment: there is a laundry room, a small cellar and a small tavern that communicates physically with the living area through an open staircase and visually through a cut of light just under the attic.
