When starting a restoration project the first few days on site are rather puzzling: there is more demolition work than reconstruction and the house looks as if it is about to disappear bit by bit…But obviously there are weak, old walls and floors that cannot be salvaged and, in the light of new seismic regulations, the architect needs to proceed very carefully where structural work and safety are involved. In this case there will be an extension that will be built in reinforced concrete, but it will, of course, be cladded in old stone, reclaimed from the site. A new restoration work of an old farmhouse in Umbria has just started: keep following new the blog if you are interested in the work progress.

the old wall: keep or tear down?
