The new building is built against a volume existing residential but from which is separated from the point of view of formal composition. Outside you can find the typical elements of rural vernacular architecture that characterize the buildings in the area like the gabled roof and the porch; the same goes for the choice of materials: wood, brick and white plaster, albeit reinterpreted in a contemporary way, pursuing an idea of ​​clean lines. The main feature is undoubtedly the "cube" brick that is imposed on light volume aggettando fronts from the west and north. Inside, the space on the ground floor is divided into two zones, the first, near the entrance, consists of a large living area where there are the kitchen, the dining area, the living room and the staircase to the upper floor while in the rear there is a bathroom, a laundry room and study. Large sliding glass doors emphasize a strong link with the outer space. On the first floor are a bedroom with bathroom, two single bedrooms and an additional toilet. From the bedroom you can access the balcony, above the porch, and the area of ​​the attic, used as a relaxation area. The building complies with all the measures aimed at saving energy. The structure is made of reinforced concrete, the infill blocks and insulating slabs and masonry. The roof, gabled asymmetrical, is made of wood laminated pine. The package cover provides ventilation and an insulating layer of 16 cm wood fiber. The fronts have a coat polystyrene 12 cm with a colored plaster excluding volume jutting brick.
