The dwelling is a mansion of the Italian typology known as “dei Ferrovieri”, which setting up in 1908, the State Railways Social Security, started to populate Italy and the areas adjacent to the historic facilities by way of this creating campaign, Then, subsequently, all these structures have been incorporated in the metropolis tissue. The creating in query is from 1921, it is a preserved and bound property by the Committee of Architectural Heritage which protects its facades and exterior appearance. It is, thus, to be regarded an inside style and design intervention.
The initially alternative we took and wanted to remain adherent to from the beginning was the routine maintenance of the roof structure. It was an vital situation for us. We required to keep the inner spirit of the time, preserving the authentic picket beams. Their visual appeal is an essential aspect of the design areas, and their artisanal affirmation would be hard to be replicated with newly manufactured beams.
The present-day part is presented by the incredibly dim coloring which gives a own ecosystem and generates an alteration of the recurring notion of the ceiling. We were being also interested in the overall look of the unfinished finishings. For two explanations, the 1st is to retain the historic memory of the house, the 2nd explanation is that we think the un-concluded details transfer an genuine, true, and a lot more hospitable really feel. There are parts of the present wall which are on sight, parts with even the original 1920s wallpaper, and portions of the wall with vintage bricks only painted with white grout.
The staircase is a sheet steel ingredient micro-perforated, it is an item that worries gravity, and will work on transparency. e It stands up thanks to its form and its material’s houses, it only has lateral assistance and as a result it is really good. Parallel to the structural aspects, there are household furniture and outfitting, which express our way of building. The objects, created by us, merge with the rest of the building. The kitchen area, the bogs, and some storage partitions are in birch and they are in harmony with the elements applied for other parts of the home.
