A FARM IN PIEDMONT
Two young families have left the city to live in a farm whose original core dates back to the ’600.
We did preserve the spirit of the original construction which expanded over the centuries, addition after addition.
We re-used the granary, where a two floor house found place, and substituted the volume of an old barn with a new timber framed addition clad with pine planks. It encloses two new rooms, now serving a bed&breakfast business. The ground floor was rearranged as a restaurant. Although we originally envisioned relaxing, white toned interiors, we rather enjoyed seeing our scheme overturned by the flamboyance of one of the owner, a graduate from the Albertina Academy of fine Arts, who made wide display of his talents on the boldly decorated walls.
