The project is a transformation of a worn down cottage from the 50’s with an extension from the mid 70’s.

The building volume and most of the structure has been kept intact, in order not to exploit the landscape but just to refine and strengthen the qualities already existing on the site.

The new facade is cladded in plywood, coated in black pine tar just like the traditional way of preserving wooden boats.
