The project foresees a profound change in the functional distribution as the house had been temporarily divided into 2 apartments with all functions duplicated, so it required a major reorganization of all hierarchies and functions.
The renovation of the infrastructures was also foreseen, with integration in the project of a hidden air conditioning system.
The intervention in the exterior area included new floors, landscaping, especially along the periphery and shading.
