From the architect: The work involved careful removal of layers, interpretation of changes made, correction of some errors and, at the same time, the surgical introduction of an elevator and new infrastructure networks. The aim was to demonstrate that it is possible to live in an old building and enjoy contemporary comforts without compromising the initial matrix.

Today we have a building constructed with original techniques and materials (wood, lime), associated with contemporary knowledge (which allowed us to re-evaluate and recover the structure and to insert modern technical requirements as if they always existed).

It was sought to create create a functional space, but above that give meaning to this space, so that the client feels comfortable and belongs to this space.
