Casa San Polo
An old abandoned house in the country back to life for a young family.
Built at the beginning of the XX century, Casa San Polo is an antique rural house located at the heart of the beautiful countryside of San Polo di Piave, close to Treviso.
The original structure was made up of three floors. The lowest two floors were habitable, whereas the attic was used as a granary. This way of using the space is a typical feature of rural dwellings of that time, characterized by a steep central staircase and a symmetric development of the rooms.
The house, abandoned for several years, totally lacked the roofing: all the wooden parts of the floors were completely damaged and also the masonry walls were compromised.
The design respects the original character of the structure, and the space is symmetrically developed around the main central block, composed by the staircase and the bathrooms.
The house features a big window looking southwards to enjoy the visual beauty of the countryside, and a wooden porch has been built in front of this opening as an addition to the original structure.
A garage and storage place has been added outside the main building.
