Renovation of a flat in Padua’s historical city centre. The flat had been set up in the 1970s and needed a reconfiguration to fit the new owner’s needs. To better the inner micro-climate – Padua is often very damp – we insulated the walls with lime hemp, a natural material with excellent hygroscopic qualities, and then painted their surfaces with lime wash. All the materials had the goal of achieving a healthy, comfortable space. The new planimetric layout recalls the traditional palaces of Veneto, modernised and articulated around a central hall. This way, we provided ample and pleasant spaces and lovely ventilation in the summer.
