ASZarchitetti and Superfuturedesign* collaborated into a rebuilding of a farmhouse in southern Tuscany.
The main theme was to adopt a modern methodology in rebuilding the house. At the same time, they needed to respect the traditional and rural architecture of the historically important area. They drew clear inspiration from the original building. The result is be an eclectic mix: the old and new, the predictable and the unknown, and most obvious, conservative nature as well as a futuristic one.
Some of the most eye-catching characteristics include the sustainable method of reusing existing materials in a modern style. In addition, there were other features, like sleek metal cornices at the openings and frameless windows. Construction was executed as per the traditional design. They used the previous outline to establish a new structure, supported it with next-generation technology.
This was proven by the resulting structure’s robustness, adherence to the latest anti-seismic codes, enhanced thermal performance, and energy efficiency.
