The work carried out by ‘The Art of Restoration’ company dates back to the early 2000s. It was a complete demolition of the original building and subsequent rebuilding.
“It was a great challenge,” says the owner of ‘The Art of Restoration’, “with meticulous work which gave us great satisfaction.”
Special features of this property were its Oak beamed ceilings. Each beam was more than 10 metres in length with a 45cm cross section. The external plaster was made with the aid of “jute” to create an aged effect.
Below is a short interview with the owners of the farmhouse.
It was restored on the basis of a draft plan drawn up by the Architect Einaudi. Actually it’s fair to say that it was not a renovation but a proper rebuilding project given that the existing ruin was completely demolished.
We requested a number of quotes and the one we received from “The Art of Restoration” was better both technically and financially.
I don’t remember exactly, but I would say a couple of years.
Absolutely, the company demonstrated professionalism and excellent technical ability in completing the work. They were also careful to preserve the building’s historical identity as well as its location.
I would certainly recommend the company to anyone who was about to embark on a restoration or rebuilding project.
