Borgo di Ventoso - historic renovation - DURING CONSTRUCTION

This three-story house is part of an historic 'borgo' (hamlet) comprised of several stone buildings dating to around the 16th Century. The house had not undergone any renovations since the 1950's or 60's. Our clients were a young Italian family of three, and our design brief was to renovate the house to meet current national Italian seismic standards and a level of energy efficiency that would make the project eligible for governmental tax breaks.

Weak historic structure: The entire structural skeleton needing reinforcing, necessitating a dismantling of the roof and each slab individually, and then a re-assembling of the structure.
