Project Description:

Work opening date: 4th September 2018

The house was built in 1935 with traditional techniques, which include the construction of wood slabs and stone outer walls. The refurbishment and volumetric enlargement of the building requires a major structural reinforcement, to make the house compliant with modern earthquake-proof legislation. Such reinforcement works involved the entire building.

A new stairwell will be added to the original house, adjoining the three levels. The second-floor will be elevated, transforming the current attic in a new floor with also a loft unit. Structural modifications required the building of 49 meters of underpinning, to support the existing foundations, and a reinforcement of story slabs. The elevation of the second floor will be made using steel beams.

The enlargement of internal spaces led to a natural re-distribution of the rooms, especially on the ground- and second-floor. The customer asked also for a technical support in the selection of interior finishing, which was made with samples during the cost-estimate phase. The new roof will be realized with a typical stone coverage called “Losa”, to meet the municipality’s landscape regulations.
