First a new level 0 was created through a total excavation of the site. This would increase heights and improve thermal performance, turning the basement into an open, privileged space that groups the home’s shared areas together. The second action involved designing connectors that would make it possible to resolve the level difference between the street and the built volume: a wooden ramp, a tramex floor for vehicles to park in, and the garden.

Architecturally, vaulted ceilings and cement floors were used through the whole property. Local sandstone “tufo” is the main material used for the construction of the structures. The bespoke and locally made bathroom sinks and kitchen tops were designed by the Studio, as well as the outdoor metal wall lamp in black powder coated finish. The interiors have been furnished and styled with vintage tables, chairs, ceramics and lamps.
