The boat in the Stone
Ristrutturazione di una casa al mare
Location Sperlonga, Italy
Description Like most of the houses in the village, the rooms are positioned between the mountains and the sea. The project introduces marine plywood as a new material to give the house a maritime feel. The old isolated and sacrificed kitchen is moved into the living room like the "dinette" of a yacht. In its place a custom made couchette constructed entirely of wood increases the number of sleeping places. The floor, being more anchored to the ground, is made of large sand-coloured stone slabs.
