From the architect. The house is located in the Monte Argentario National Park on the top of an hill with an amazing view facing the sea and the islands just in front of Tuscany. It is an old agricoltural warehouse which has been completely rebuild in its shape using recovery stones from the old building.

The particular roof system has been built following a local tradition which was performed in a  contemporary way. New openings create windows which allow to enjoy the beautiful view from all the side of the house.

The stones and the white plasters of the windows width create a sophisticated atmosphere which gives to the building a strong image.
