The bearing walls are then made of three layers: the load-bearing structure, insulation and the existing old brick masonry. This solution enhanced the key features of the house like the beautiful wooden pattern for the arched windows and some old elements like the round windows.
The interior is well balanced, simple and with accent on the traditional style as it displays old materials and furniture. The outer wooden pattern happening on the whole long side at the second floor has received its significance even indoors, as a tribute to the interior. The overall presence of warm colours and natural light makes the atmosphere cosy and welcoming.
As a consequence, from the new-built underground extension the house has won a space for a terrace with a grill/fire place and running water for outdoor cooking and dining, all this in combination with a beautiful view. This contribution is, perhaps, impossible to overlook, having in mind the warm Italian evenings and the rich social life.
