Text description provided by the architects. The XV century farm villa, object of CMT Architetti restoration, is located in Tuscany (ITALY) in the town of Monteriggioni (Siena), just a few steps away from the beautiful “Castello della Chiocciola”. The Villa has been attributed by some scholars to Baldassarre Peruzzi opera, a fomous Sienese painter and architect who worked in that area between the XV and the XVI century.

The intervention focuses on the noble floor of 400 square meters with the realisation of a modern, functional and every comfort equipped apartment.

The leading idea of the project was to use two parallel registers, the almost philological restoration of the original parts and the absolutely contemporary project of new interventions and  furnishing.
The result is an assembly in which the two parties communicate with expressions that are even very different, but with the constant search for a final common synthesis.

The original walls were treated with a lime-colored paste and pulled to iron plaster on the example of the ancients XV centuty plasters , the floor slabs too, were treated with lime. The existing floors have been restored and they veiled with natural lime too.

The new environments functional to the new residential program are made as white enamel gloss boxes which never arrive to the ceiling, so that they can hold  indidect led light illumination. The new living floor is made of clear ochre resin cement, without any expansion joint. Also the bath floors and coverings are made of the same materials. The night zone floors  are all made with a natural oxidized Oak parquet treated with lime.All the furniture of the house, with the exception of some object of recovery, are tailor made products from local artisans, unique and unrepeatable.
