Text description provided by the architects. 8 House is located in the countryside of Sant'agostino next to a developing production area; it is closed between a large dimensions factory located to the east side and the expectation of urban development in the south side. It will be built on the ruins of an existing house, strongly affected by the earthquake of May 2012.

The planimetric choice was to try to rebuild an intimate security, order and tranquility, typical of the old farmhouses, combining it with the design variables to revive the particular image of the barns scattered over the countryside nearby. The house has a square plan, with a four sides roof, supported by a series of pillars, elements that interact with the environment and with the design of the historic rural buildings.

The dining room is the heart of the rebuilding and the reason of the house plant; it is placed in the center and is sized to recevive a big number of persons during the feast. Next to the main building there is the services one, that will be made in mould of concrete with interposed course of bricks in sight to accentuate the horizontal effect of the rebuilding.

From the previous buildings will be preserved the well and the statue of the Madonna that protected the property; now the relic will be placed on a dedicated platform near the entrance of the new house, to welcome visitors and protect the locals.
