It is rebuilt the main building with masonry stone walls taken out from the existent ruin, impregnated with the time footprints. The extension includes the half-buried garage, that has also the function of stone bench and, the volume attached to the living room and main bedroom. This volume is in concrete and oak Wood remaining to the vernacular models of auxiliary buildings, characterisized for being constructed in Wood and for its volumetric simplicity.

In the inside, the masonry stone, wooden roof, concrete walls and floors, try to achieve spaces with a formal and discursive unity, avoiding too obvious solutions between the new and old. A double-height space, where the kitchen is placed, links up the two floors, achieving a gamble of lights and contrasts, evoking past atmospheres with distant views.

With the reconstruction of the old natural terrace is redefined the edification complex: main building, the cottage and the bed with the pond.
