Borgo di Ventoso - historic renovation
in this photo: edge detail of hand-cut oak meeting stone wall; thermal insulating plaster frame around window
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.

We added a border of thermal insulating plaster as an interior frame around each window to avoid any thermal bridges or leaks resulting from the installation of the windows.
