Valtellina Orobian Alps Regional Park Italy

SV HOUSE

Architect Rocco Borromini has completed the design of ‘SV house’, a renovation project that involved the restoration of a set of stone ruins. Located in northern Italy, adjacent to the Orobic Alps, the dwelling offers sweeping views across the picturesque landscape. The simple structure comprises two existing stone walls connected by a reinforced concrete slab, while the upper storey, including its new façade and roof, is made of wood.

Within the home, a series of intimate and comfortable spaces ensure a warm and inviting atmosphere, while limited space has been maximized throughout the scheme. A lightweight steel staircase positioned against the rear wall features transparent landings that allow natural light to permeate each area of the plan. although timber has been used for flooring on the upper storeys, the ground level features Luserna stone, emphasizing a continuity between internal and external space.
