infos | ’70s independent house refurbishment in the countryside
dalla relazione di progetto | The refurbishment concerns a ‘70s house designed according to a very common and popular model of those years. The low-quality of the building is balanced by the presence of a huge 30 years old garden. The project, while maintaining the formal look of the organism as it showed up, works to bring inside the house the beauty of the park, opening the interior spaces and creating rooms which operate halfway between the inside and the outside. The use of glass and wooden boxes stretched outward, amplifies this intention. The project aims at regaining the currently denied relationship with the garden. To do so, two kind of actions are performed: the first is to remove all the unnecessary structures and open the walls where required till the walls’ structural limits; the second is to realize new “parasite” structures that work as boundary membranes between the interior and the exterior space, emphasizing their relationship.
