This country house renovation is a project designed by MIDE architetti and covers an area of 320 m2. The project site involves an old country house, built in 1887 in the immediate neighborhood of Lucca and a most recent farmhand’s cottage.
This is a classic Tuscan villa recently restored with sophisticated simplicity. For the renovation of this historic building the architects from Archidomus Atelier, Monica Rossi and Claudio Cencetti, have used materials that will maintain and enhance its typical characteristics to give the villa charming and simultaneously contemporary expression. The beautiful supporting ceiling beams have been carefully sandblasted and restored at their original glory to create a home charming in the minimalistic modern decor. The solidity of the used materials, the spirit of time past that can be felt in the premises and the simple elegance of the more modern additions composes a very inviting and stylish space to inhabit.
