An old country house in Fossò, in the province of Venice, in Italy becomes a sort of refuge within the town thanks to the wily hand of 3ndy Studio. The project consists in the renovation with extension of an existing cottage. The original building is constructed with masonry hand-made bricks, from the early 900, the year of construction of the building, lined with thermal insulation coating exterior and interior drywall. Instead, the new part is made with bi-brick-lined externally and internally with plasterboard thermal coat.
Home Sweet Home is made “partially with ancient materials, which come from the old grandfather’s house, like wood and brickwork recalling the family roots” and partially with very contemporary materials like Corian, used for the furniture and stairs. Inside, the atmosphere is very cosy thanks to the colour of the natural material used for the interior wall and for the floor.
“The ‘simple complexity’ of the composition is the result of a series of constraints dictated by the topography of the site and the many demands of a competent client wary of protecting their privacy.”
