The Second Life Of An Old Farmhouse

The old houses are rich in a particular charm, but unfortunately often do not match the current needs of modern life. Small low windows provide a feeling of dark and foster the perception of a narrow space. Moreover, we must not forget that these structures have defied time, and are therefore almost never safe and habitable.

Most of the house has been left open to below the ear drum, in this way the beams that have been preserved as a design element, add character and style to the new structure of the house, becoming the center of the design. The living room has a ceiling height of almost 8 meters, which particularly affects the feeling of space that results.

The kitchen has been installed between the dining area and the living room and fits perfectly between the two ancient central beams which gives it a very original rustic feel.

Here is the simplicity and the beauty of the tradition, the kind of beauty that can not be explained or groped to play.

The beauty and warmth of a residence of the past, with stone finishes, wood trusses, is unparalleled. Especially the wooden ceiling makes the difference, this space would not be the same without this imposing structure on sight. Also we find the wooden railing of the stairs, and of course the furniture.

The house is divided on two floors, autonomous and independent of each other, each with bathroom, kitchen and separate entrance, but connected. The main element of the project is the dramatic spiral staircase.
