Thanks to new building regulations it was possible to extend a detached house in the small village of San Teodoro in Sardinia. The client’s wish was to redefine the entrance, to have a bigger living room and a new kitchen, more suitable to her culinary passion. The existing building, designed in the 1970s, was lacking of any architectural quality.
The small extension consists in two volumes: a white plastered one which defines the new entrance, preceded by a pergola, and another one of stonemasonry where the kitchen is located.
The living room has been enlarged, while the former kitchen has been converted into a small guest-room.
The stone is the typical “pietra da campo” (field stone) used in the traditional buildings of the surrounding and already used for some elements of the existing building.
