This new professional assignment began in 2008, when Moreno and Cristiano asked me to take care of the recovery of an artifact in the countryside between Albiniaand the Parrina estate in Tuscany, which had just been purchased by their families.
L’obbiettivo era la trasformazione dell’edificio esistente ad uso abitativo in una nuova struttura ricettiva agrituristica che utilizzasse concetti eco-sostenibili.
In this new adventure we faced all the constructive, seismic, distributive, functional problems and we reasoned together on how to respond to the needs of customers in order to offer a place that was modern but at the same time pleasant, efficient and that evoked a family welcome and well-being .
Some new architectural solutions such as the truss and stairs with balconies have given personality to the farmhouse, proposing architectural elements typical of some local types and resolving the distribution to the rooms on the first floor.
The use of local exposed stone with an austere appearance and modern but elementary shapes is softened by day by the vegetation of the surrounding garden and by night lighting in the evening that highlights its roughness.
The external insulation system, the integration of solar panels on the parking structure, the attention dedicated to vertical and horizontal thermal and acoustic insulation, natural water-based paints, the use of natural wood floors are all factors that contribute to an eco-sustainable use, and allow the building to obtain the class “A”.
I hope that the passion and commitment lavished by everyone shines through in the architectural and construction details may arouse some emotion to all those who will have the opportunity to sleep in Podere del Priorato, as well as benefiting from an attentive family welcome adorned with rich homemade culinary delicacies served for breakfast in front of a field of sunflowers.
