The restoration of an early twentieth-century barn in Val Tidone, Italy led to this characteristic project combining traditional and contemporary architecture. A typical farmhouse has been transformed into a holiday home without radically altering its original form.
A simple architectural style has been chosen to successfully respond to the needs of a large family. The horizontal and vertical connection of the surfaces are enhanced by the glass covered passageway-cum-yard and the particular design of the staircase (a key element of the project) which together provide a sense of continuity between the interior spaces.
Light is abundant from the wall-to-wall windows, and exposes the brick the barn is built from onÂ every wall. Itâ€™s an explosion of old charm founded only in places like this one.
