The intervention dealt with the recovery of a 1960s house typical of the area. Through the project, a contemporary reinterpretation was proposed, giving the house new light and its inhabitants a new way of living spaces.

Initially the house consisted of an external stairwell and the ground floor was intended for storage, the house developed on the first floor.

The project involved moving the fulcrum of the house to the ground floor, freeing the side walls with large windows and establishing a direct relationship between the living area and the surrounding garden.

The first floor, on the other hand, was transformed into a sleeping area with the creation of a double-height space obtained from the demolition of part of the attic. In this way it was possible to incorporate the staircase, initially outside the house, in the new volume, creating a great connection between all the rooms.
