Casa FEVI is the result of a renovation and re-functionalization of a portion of the historic beam in the Trapani countryside conducted by SOA - Salvatore Oddo Architect between July 2019 and December 2020.
Originally the building, which in the past was used for ancillary functions, did not present elements of architectural value and was distinguished from the rest to the lack of decoration and poor state of repair.
The design effort was to adapt the place to the contemporary needs of a young couple, establishing a new dialogue with the landscape.
The architectural concept is placed in the wake of the construction tradition of the residences connected to agriculture in western Sicily. The typological layout takes up the principles of courtyard buildings, such as beams and farms, thus grouping the volumes around a central open-air space that acts as a hinge to the various rooms. The three buildings are interconnected on the ground floor by a light addition in glass and iron.
There are many elements of local tradition that come into play. The color and materials used create points of contact between old and new: the pitched wooden roofs have been covered by the ancient recovered tiles and the pink color of the walls restores the bucolic atmosphere of the Mediterranean.
A metal staircase hanging from the attics leads us to the upper floors.
