Creating a telescope on nature. This is the idea behind the renovation and extension project for a farmhouse in Tuscany, located on a hillside between the sea and the countryside of the Tuscan Maremma. The building was rather unremarkable; the challenge of architect Stefania Grippo, who oversaw both the architectural design and the interior, was to give character to the farmhouse, enhancing its spectacular location overlooking the entire bay.

The central body features large openings in FerroFinestra W75 TB and Curtain Walls system for the glazed roof. The original spaces of the farmhouse have been extended with the insertion of two Glass Houses with sliding doors in Cor-ten steel, which accommodate two bright living areas.
