Situated in Treviso, northern Italy, this country house is offered a new life by Zanonarchitettiassociati (Zaa) through the renovation of its interiors and the expansion of the living space. The latter is designed in the extended structure made of a glass and corten steel framework.
In this renovation project, Zaa has realized a volume that blends seamlessly with the natural landscape through the arrangement of wide windows. from the outside, the glass volume reflects the surrounding nature becoming part of it, while from the inside the windows become invisible — giving the impression of being outdoor. In the end, the living room becomes one with the countryside because of the glazing all around.
The new living space features a vast room with several different sitting zones: the first is for enjoying the fire – there are two comfy loungers and a large fireplace; the second and the third are created with one large sofa and various chairs and seats on its both sides.
The kitchen looks very edgy as it’s covered with concrete, and the cabinets and appliances are stainless steel ones. There’s a real working fireplace with a firewood storage space underneath. Over the kitchen there’s an attic space, used for sleeping: there are only two beds and exposed wooden beams, nothing else.
