Giorgio Morandi Natura morta, 1957 Olio su tela, 30 x 35 cm Musée Jenisch, Vevey

The project proposes to change the interior of the old building turning it into a home for an artist without distorting the nature of the external structure , bearer of the past history of the building.

The internal structures of the masonry shell are run entirely dry through beams and boards that make up the lightweight internal skeleton.

The environment takes place on two levels in the system as original and provides a ground floor which primarily serves as a living area for daily use and work while upstairs there is a relaxation area and the sleeping area.

With the exception of the atelier , which is accessed via an overhead door, the spaces permeate into one another thanks to “ divisions read” such as linen curtains in order to make the most natural lighting.

The neutral environment , which gives space to the color of the paintings, is recreated through the use of a few materials and simple furnishings.
