Renovation of two farmhouses in Roddino, Cuneo (Italy)
The project consists of renovating two existing farmhouses in the town of Roddino (Cuneo, Italy), and transforming them into two residences.
The 19th century buildings are part of the buffer zone of the Unione dei Comuni delle Colline di Langa e del Barolo [Union of Municipalities of Colline di Langa and Barolo], a UNESCO World Heritage Site described as “outstanding living testimony to winegrowing and winemaking traditions that stem from a long history, and that have been continuously improved and adapted up to the present day. [The cultural landscapes of the Piedmont vineyards] bear witness to an extremely comprehensive social, rural and urban realm, and to sustainable economic structures.“
The two farmhouses are located inside an area of 21,000 square metres on the edge of the south-western Langa, where castles and villages interrupt the harmonious landscape framed by the vineyards of Dolcetto and Nebbiolo. 391 people live in the provincial capital of this vast territory, while the vast majority live in the neighbouring villages.
The project consists of renovating some historic buildings while maintaining the existing volumes; new service buildings will be constructed near the house.
