The project is located at the beginning of Montevarchi town centre half way, historically, between Florence and Arezzo on the state road. The work is made up of three buildings which are at right angles to the road and a cylinder element which encompasses two pre-existing buildings in a courtyard feature forming a central square.

A landscape which is broadly agricultural is fringed by the hills of Pratomagno and Chianti. As a whole the building has two floors plus an attic. With its gabled roof, the cylinder element is very different from the other hipped roofed structures. The materials used are classic exposed brickwork and stone while the roofs are in traditional terracotta.

The buildings are joined together by stone elements up to the height of the first floor and the roofs have been turned into terraces with wood pergolas on top which are a classic of Tuscan rural architecture. The site is currently made up of one building in very bad condition and the area is chaotic. The project aims to reorganise the layout of the area.
