A barn, with stable and hayloft, has been renovated as a holiday residence. The people who commissioned the work chose to maintain the status of barn, in order to preserve most of the original structure, the historical surfaces of the building and the landscape inprint. The ground floor has been transformed from a stable into a storage room on one side and a 'natural'-looking bathroom with wooden features on the other side. The main room on the first floor has been adapted for residential purposes, making excellent use of the original balcony to hang the hay, into a wide system of windows that now gives an impressive view over the Dolomites. The exterior has been restored and kept as much as possible as it was: only the building's 'wooden skin' is now openable.
