The renovation project of the house for a couple with children is developed in a valuable Roman building from the 1970s, inevitably conditioned by the design of the balconies that clearly characterize the external appearance of the building.

The simple geometric sequence of the straight line, the semicircle and the quarter circle, becomes in fact the project layout, coherently defining to the external spaces the design of the internal partitions and all the furnishings that complete the home.

Once defined the distribution scheme on this geometric principle, it began the exciting work of material and chromatic definition, which arrived through several versions at an approach based on the use of oak wood and the white of the walls; some citations of calacatta marble are inserted in this clear dualism, where the function, mainly in terms of resistance, requires a material which is more suitable from this point of view.

The final version therefore is characterized by the living space divided by partitions in oak wood which defines the entrance, the distribution spaces, the kitchen area and the study.

Oak wood is also used for the wardrobes, furnishings and above all for the stave paneling that covers the entire long wall of the corridor that runs along the living area.

The master suite, characterized by a wardrobe in the center of the room that acts as a headboard, accesses the bathroom directly from a sliding panel that first shows the free-standing bathtub, then the large shower compartment, the double sink station and finally, secluded, the toilet and bidet area.

Even the children’s bedrooms and their bathrooms are organized according to the design philosophy appropriately interpreted in the colors most appropriate to the age.

The baby in the family finds as well a nice hiding place behind the large retractable textile wall that encloses her wardrobe, obviously according to a straight curved geometry.

insufflation of external walls and internal climate management

The blowing was carried out with Isover Insulsafe 33 from Saint-Gobain (white glass wool in flakes, produced with recycled glass, without thermosetting resin) after checking the conditions of the cavity by means of an endoscope, to check the state of the facings and the possible presence of water infiltrations.

Once the suitability of the conditions was ascertained, the holes necessary for the application were made, sealing the possible escape routes, then the actual blowing using an injector machine, starting from the bottom and then gradually rising towards the ceiling.

The beams were insulated with Isover Clima 34 panels from Saint-Gobain.

radiant floor system and controlled mechanical ventilation

Radiant floor system with low thickness screed, equal to 6 cm, engaged by 20 mm of insulation, 20 mm piping, 20 mm of self-leveling screed made with Termoanidro Premium, self-leveling premixed screed based on pure natural anhydrite, selected limestone aggregates and additives to improve the performance of the product, indicated in green building interventions, ideal for radiant floor conditioning systems.

The installation took place using a suitable means of transport equipped with a pump. The outdoor unit that powers the system is a Daikin Altherma EPGA11DAV3 low temperature split unit, an air-water floor heat pump for heating, cooling and domestic hot water production, ideal for homes with low energy requirements.

The indoor units are instead the Daikin INTEGRATED R32 H / C 230L 16 kW.

Due to the presence of beams that inhibited the correct passage of the pipes, it was necessary to resort to two separate dehumidifiers, two machines also from Daikin RER050AE000 Dehumidifier Recovery 050 IsoT.

A 4kWh photovoltaic roof system contributes to the power supply of the air conditioning system.
