from the relation | …The project concerns the extension of a small single-family house built in the ’70s inside a former agricultural building. The volume of the extension has an important character of neutrality: this term refers both to the emphasis put on the non-conflictuality between what is old and what is new, and on the adoption of an appropriate distances from nearby buildings. The resulting volume is a materially homogeneous prism, able to hide its mass thanks to the relationship established with what is around, turning itself into a simple border element. Thus the shape derives directly from the “imposed” site conditions, as well as the construction technique and the material look are the result of a crossing between the technology and the planning rules. In order to reduce the dimensions of the volume, the shell consists of a thin concrete wall containing iron oxides.
