Today we discuss the work of architects Pignattai and Vossaert and light designer Davide Groppi who restored a splendid home in Montalcino surrounded by the natural beauty of Tuscany. When the owners purchased the lot, there were a number of abandoned old buildings on it, including a mill with a water wheel and a church.
The architects aimed to maintain the original structure and appearance of the home while adding all the comforts essential in a summer home today. The two-floor home contains a kitchen, living room and bedrooms, while the basement contains a swimming pool, a gym and a wine cellar. The old church on the property has been renovated and converted into a guesthouse.
The lighting is designed to invite and welcome people to various spaces in the home, embracing the house as a whole and maintaining the building’s original nature and heritage .
