Borgo di Ventoso - historic renovation
in this photo: exposed wooden beam end in stone masonry, in stair well
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.

Thermally insulating the external structure, leaving the mass of the stone wall in contact with the interior environment allows the house to remain more comfortable in the hot summers.
