Of the primary inspection of the previous constructing, I keep in mind a heap of objects that had been used for the manufacturing and storage of wine: barrels, glass demijohns enclosed by wicker weaves, terracotta jars, scattered across the giant stone vats used for processing grapes and fermenting should. Earlier than the renovation challenge of this historical millstone, it was essential to reconstruct the historical past of the place, to know its essence, to think about the life that had animated it.

The constructing was articulated in a number of our bodies of the constructing, some with vaulted roofs others with picket pitched roofs, positioned round out of doors areas of relevance, particularly an entrance courtyard and a big backyard.

The intervention was conservative for all the present volumes apart from the central core, of which, following a collapse throughout development, solely a portion was rebuilt. This made it potential to develop the out of doors area, join the doorway courtyard to the backyard, and supply higher flexibility within the pathways.

Thus, across the central core that homes the dwelling space and kitchen are articulated the others used as bedrooms and providers, which stay impartial of one another and luxuriate in a direct relationship with the surface.

These locations, as soon as dedicated to work, have been rethought based on a up to date use program, and particular consideration has been paid to the likelihood for the consumer to completely expertise the dwelling areas of their totality and autonomy, even through the cohabitation of a number of households.

On this challenge, the traditional pre-existences of their authentic state coexist concurrently with the objects and habits of up to date dwelling in measured stability.
