LAMBRUGO MONASTERY - PHASE I

ARCHITETTURA ed INTORNI as Architects

First phase of the restoration project of the ancient Monastery. Former cloistered convent of the order of the 'Benedettine' dating back to the 16th century The intervention lot I, located in the east wing of the monastery, was entirely recovered following the great deterioration in which it lay. Structural interventions have been made important, as well as necessary, to guarantee the stability of the entire portion. The intervention also saw the complete elimination of incrustations that occurred in the past eras, not recognizing any value in the latter (false ceilings and partitions that did not allow the perception of the uniqueness of the space), bringing to light the original underlying shell. All finishes were made respecting the construction standards of the time and using compatible materials.
