STANNO TUTTI BENE
DISSERTATION ABOUT A BIG FAMILY HOUSE
“We believe that we can change the things around us in accordance with our desires, we believe it because otherwise we can see no favourable outcome. We do not think of the outcome which generally comes to pass and is also favourable: we do not succeed in changing things in accordance with our desires, but gradually our desires change. The situation that we hoped to change because it was intolerable becomes unimportant to us. We have failed to surmount the obstacle, as we were absolutely determined to do, but life has taken us round it, led us beyond it, and then if we turn round to gaze into the distance of the past, we can barely see it, so imperceptible has it become.”
“Stanno tutti bene” is a project focused on reorganizing the interior of an aged farmhouse and its new little addition. After a couple of week in searching for a solution, finally, we found a way to sort out the original fragmented space into a very lighted open space. We added a small volume in front of the house as a tres d’union among the living area, kitchen spaces and night area. This trick fixed all the past accessibility issues and got spaces fluid. Then we faced the subdivision of remaining part ad we created a playroom, three bathrooms and five bedrooms. To achieve the goals, we designed custom furniture that allowed us to optimize space and create volume where there was none before. We used a classical approach in terms of colours and materials that we balanced with a modern impact in terms of planimetry and usability of the house spaces.
