The project is aimed to the enlargement of the ground floor and the creation of an underground floor in an existing countryhouse. The context, deeply influenced by the types of materials and formal of the site, has allowed the construction of a new building conforming to the existing part. The arrangement of the volume creates a new external environment more intimate and completely redesigned, starting from the accommodation of the paths to the flower beds adjacent to the newly built part. The two parts of the building, the new one and the old one, were joined by creating a veranda that overlooks the external environment.
