ATTIC RENOVATION IN THE HISTORIC CENTER OF RIMINI
The structure degradation required the demolition of the existing roof and the reconstruction with new material and technologies in order to achieve a seismic improvement. To reduce the loads and guarantee the best seismic response whe have chosen a wooden structure. Therefore the old and run-down tiled roof was replaced by a new structural wooden shell.
Moreover, the existing roof did not provide any type of thermal insulation creating risk of water infiltration. In agreement with the client we have designed a new roof whose stratigraphy would allow to meet the highest standards of environmental comfort.
Natural lighting illuminates the interior spaces through a large skylight on the roof pich. A glazed façade in the east side provide access to the terrace and creates a spatial continuity between inside and outside .
Inside, the wood on the floor and ceiling creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The metallic elements of the facades, the balaustrade and the fireplace create an elegant contrast.
Three steps lead to the outdoor terrace. This space, thank to its peculiar position, enjoys an unusual privacy considering its location in the city center. Moreover the wooden flooring and the plants help make it an intimate and familiar space.
The attic renovation allows this loft in the historic city center of Rimini to obtain an accurate solar exposure throughout the year. As a result of the choice of material and finishes creates a modern space with great attention to the environment.
