AN OLD STYLE DWELLING FROM THE SIXTIES HAS BEEN TURNED INTO A MODERN A PREFABRICATED WOODEN AND STEEL HOUSE

In Pordenone, an old family house from the 1960s was completely demolished leaving space for a new wooden, environmentally friendly house. This house meets the customer’s needs and has all the necessities for everyday life.

For a prefabricated house, you don’t have to think about a standard and simplified set-up, because this is an example of advanced design where the central body of the house – approximately the size of the pre-existing one – was connected to the south side of a steel structure that protrudes from the façade containing a split window on three levels. The main staircase, which is an architectural component linking all the floors, is located within this mostly open volume. Internally, the concept of traditional living has been revolutionized, by positioning the living area, dining room and kitchen on the top floor. The kitchen overlooks a large terrace, a special location from where the foothills of the Carnic Alps can be seen. All the bedrooms, two of which are double rooms, are located on the lower floor and were designed as suites. Each one has an en suite wardrobe, a private bathroom and a fitness area.

In addition to the connecting staircase, there is a hoist, which is perfectly concealed inside a contemporary looking boiserie. Inside this customized built-in boiserie system are also the flush wall openings made using solutions from the ECLISSE Syntesis Collection. In a perfectly continuous solution, the same carving of the boiserie is also used to define the door panels that access a bathroom and two double bedrooms, opting for both flush mounted hinged doors and sliding concealed doors without external finishings. Elsewhere, a door panel that is completely free of any decorative element was instead chosen to reflect the formal and compositional lines that characterize the entire building.
