Abstract 

An ancient and listed building, heritage of the past, becomes a new home/office, intertwining a dialog between indoor and outdoor, place and space, voids and levels, walls and glasses. The roof with terrace, skylight and pv panels becomes a fifth \”facade\”. Like in a Piranesi’s work you can move in many directions through the space.

Report 

The architectural recovery of the historical listed settlement Casa Gualerzi is based on the preservation of the typological and morphological building’s characters. The building, originally established as a stable and barn annexed to an historical listed park, is redefined by an innovative use of interior spaces that emphasize volumes and original spatiality in a continuous dialogue between innovation and tradition.

The project works on existing indoor levels, contemporarily reinterpreted, not changing voids and full spaces of the historical facades and the typological elements such as the porch, but elevating them like key points to define free plans inside the volume, where slide on each other generating double and triple height cavities.

The staircase is studied on the columns original system of the barn. The spaces on the first floor underline the juxtaposition of the central body to the east wing through the introduction of a double flight stair linking all internal levels, appearing as transparent cases hanging into the volume.

This movement of levels originates new enclosed surfaces caring about privacy while, at the same time, it allows the hayloft spaces to be read and looked up in their beauty.

Inside you can explore different places: from the hall foyer to the relax and waiting room, from the marketing offices to the archive, the administrative offices to the head ones, always passing through the central space that contains an open meeting room and a brunch-coffee break hospitality area both faced on the new full height winter garden, an hanged library and a video conference room, situated above the porch.

On the upper floors, the staircase’s movement leads to the head office-studio with roof terrace in continuity with the skylight of the winter garden.
