A building dating back to the early 900, used as a dwelling, has a small area of open space, a legacy of fragmentation of the surrounding housing lots. The project aims to enhance and reorganize the space making sure that it does not remain within easy pedestrian access, but can become an integral part of the living spaces. The regularity of the prospectus of the building, the materials measured and sober, affect the design choices. A floor area in gravel, punctuated according to a specific plan from the volumes formal boxwood interrupted by some flowering annual, draw the entire field. In front of the opening window of the living room floor in a natural wood planks allows you to live in the garden. An informal hedge in Phyllostachys shuts down.
