The space of work requests privacy, visibility and sharing at the same time. This space can be geometrically shaped and visually connected at the same time, this has been the main goal of the project. The idea for the design was based on grey scale tones in an effort to showcase the aesthetic and functional advantages of the chosen natural materials (stone and wood), but in the same time leaving complete freedom to the choice of furniture.

The client bought a fifty years old house, located in the middle of the town, that had the chance to be enlarged through an extension.
The aim of the project was to renovate the existing building, adding an extension that was connected physically and in terms of architectural language.
In order to provide a good spatial relation between the existing part and the new one, the internal layout has been completely changed. During the design process, one of the key element has been the relation with the city, apertures were studied in order to exploit the bene ts of the strategic location in terms of view and lights, with a particular attention to the privacy of the more private spaces of the house.
