A FRESH START FOR A 70’s SINGLE HOUSE
An old 70’s house, poorly characterized, is totally refurbished with decise interventions on energetic and architectonic features, keeping an eye on economic aspects. The plot measure approximately 1500 sqm; situated in a panoramic position, it enjoys a wonderful view over the Lago di Varese. The building consists of two 150 sqm levels; at the ground floor the living room, the kitchen and the dining room; at the first floor there are 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a balcony. A 150 sqm basement hosts facilities and parkings. The principles leading the project are: te reconnection of the house with its garden, up to now paradoxically denied for the layout of existing windows; the energetic retraining and the realization of a new heating and cooling system; the redefinition of a contemporary language for the building architecture; a complete restyling of the interiors; a new landscape design in collaboration with arch. Giulia Gatti.
