This time, the owners were fascinated by architect Mark Mertens, who promised them that he would restore the ruined building and will enhance comfortable and cozy home with all modern amenities.
Access to this site on a steep terrain and narrow streets required a stable arms of men. The stairs, terraces, natural basin, all the walls were fixed together with the stones recovered on the site. Outside and inside, the balance of volumes and correct proportions are noticeable. What a great base for expressing a real penchant for old things and “structured material.”
Mark Mertens nested soft atmospheres that added character to the house using some icons of furniture design – Vitra, Knoll and Cassina chairs. On the walls, he hangs large pictures. He loves to mix, contemporary work and old piece of furniture.
