Project by Lorenzo Tognocchi – Client: private – Status: built

The project concerns the restoration and expansion of a house located in a countryside building of the late XIX century.
The house was extended into the internal courtyard, with a new entrance and a new oak stair connecting the living space on the ground floor with the night zone on the first floor.
The kitchen has been placed in the in the old veranda of the countryhouse, a small construction adjoining the main building located on a lower level.
A new opening in the perimeter wall has permitted to link the kitchen to the living room through a small stair composed by six steps. At the same time the opening allows the view ower the garden and the countryside from the living space. A big wooden library and a new and essential fireplace complete the living room.
