from the relation | The subject of the historic urban reclamation is dealt here maintaining the existing structure, however extending it with new volumes which cling as parasites to the existing building to create a more suited body for the contemporary living. The structural glasses, the black impregnated plywood and the bare walls, left in the same state in which they showed up, constitute a complex landscape in which the presence of the area ‘s historical stratifications and the intentional perishability are not unrelevant. The ground floor is intended as a machine stretching out from the original facade. The garden, with its perimetral walls, turns from a mere scenery into an integral part of the interior spaces. With this new spatial relationship, the smaller rooms (kitchen and bathroom), are expanded thanks to the new depth of field. The interiors are characterized by a material and volumetric simplicity, reducing all the details to the minimum.
