How to renovate a country house in a modern way using the fixtures

Italy is a country full of historic buildings, villas, farms, entire buildings completely surrounded by greenery that with their architecture tell the story of that city or that country, Fauglia, in Tuscany is one of them.

It is a town of 3,600 inhabitants on the Pisan hills, where the villas and farms are completely immersed in the green of the olive trees and vineyards and the yellow of the burnt midsummer grass.

The renovation project which we will talk about in this article speaks of a large, completely white country house that stands out on a dominant hill, which stands out next to the town center.

This villa has undergone a thorough renovation, creating a building of modern conception with the latest generation materials and techniques, the project of this renovated farmhouse was carried out by Studio Associato Dal Canto of Fauglia, and in particular ofArch. Lorenzo Dal Canto andEng. Francesco Dal Canto, who have taken care of every detail and have chosen to install different models of modern windows by Internorm with the technical support and collaboration of Internorm flagship store in Pontedera, managed by the Partner Internorm Vivi Italia, under the guidance of Massimo Gambicorti and of Michela Sandu.

The project idea and the study of the elevations with the new fixtures

One of the cornerstones is to keep theaccess on two sides.

L’external access, because it is oriented towards the outside of the estate, characterized by the presence of a large window, fixed, and a entrance door rather large, to underline a “transparency” between fixed glass surfaces ed opaque elements that can be opened really important.

External facade on the entrance side
The whole of all these white windows measures more than 6 meters, thus harmonizing with a façade with no other openings other than small windows, except for two sliding doors near the opposite corners, overhanging the garden, which have a pleasant function of balance on the entire façade.

The second entry of the house in the country is on the opposite side, from the part hidden to those coming from the outside, this elevation compared to the external access is more varied, offering access in several points, through large French windows and modern windows, in front of patios and junction points of various paved paths separated by greenery and flowers, look towards the large swimming pool.

Second access to the pool side
This internal elevation being south oriented it receives the summer sun directly and the completely white walls and floors contribute as a whole to a relaxation area of ​​the building which is very pleasant to live in.

L’arredo outdoor it was chosen using simple and not too impactful elements in order to provide shelter from the sun without affecting the facade, which is already very complex.

The aim of the designers was precisely to put the visitor at ease by welcoming him in this very pleasant space to live both alone and in company.

The choice of shapes and sizes of openings with Internorm fixtures

In the design of the openings, it was preferred to keep shapes and dimensions that were not particularly sought after, especially in the part exposed to the outside, therefore it was opted for horizontal windows, small in size, apart from the fixed element next to the entrance door.

The model of modern external fixtures used for these openings is the KF410 from Internorm, a window of the highest technological level whose solutions allow insulating performance at the top of the market.

The openings placed in the internal façade, where the large kitchen and the dining and living rooms are located, are larger.

On this it was chosen to install various French doors, which overlook the patios next to the large swimming pool. The final result of this choice is an external elevation with a completely different architecture compared to the opposite side, in fact the large openings the kitchen and dining area, being the places dedicated to daytime activities, create environments completely open to light.

Not to mention the fact that these sliding patio doors, obtained with the model KS430 from Internorm, have such generous dimensions to create seamless environments with the patios and outdoor gardens, also thanks to the lowered threshold, in fact with the window completely open there is no architectural barrier and the passage is thus always comfortable and safe.

The large size of the French windows KS430 in PVC di Internorm they are able to create that feeling of openness in both open and closed environments, this is also possible thanks to the type of glass used by the company, glasses of great transparency.

They complete the range of doors and windows that make the project particularly evolved from the point of view of the openings KV440 windows from Internorm, which, thanks to the integrated darkening system, allow you not to have any external darkening system that would have hindered the search for modernity and essentiality in the architectural project and make it extremely easy and comfortable to choose the amount of light to pass in the interior environments, especially in the bedrooms.

In this way, the choice of specific doors and windows has allowed a planning particularly aimed at creating an exterior that fits in a particularly harmonious way in the splendid nature of the place.

In fact the White color chosen for all the elements of the facade, apart from some slightly darker decorative elements, it makes the housing complex particularly light, despite the large size of the villa, letting the gaze linger on the magical natural colors of the surrounding countryside and the stretch of water constituted by the large swimming pool.

In this villa the designers have managed to renovate something old using something new, that is the modern fixtures of Interno and have shown how it is possible to build with modern technologies, respecting nature and leaving it its deserved protagonism.

Obviously, the choice of Internorm fixtures was not made only for a purely aesthetic question, but also technical and functional, in fact all the insulation techniques used in this building that place it in class A mainly feel in the maximum limitation of emissions, for the health of those who live in the environment and of the whole surrounding area.
