Bay House – Trieste, Italy

The project consists in the radical renovation of a former rural architecture on the spectacular bay of Duino Aurisina. FR-A engaged with the exterior and interior renovation of the original stone structures built on the site since 1850, the overall landscaping with outdoor pool and covered car park areas, and the large roof extension hosting the main bedrooms and the terrace overlooking the bay, protected by an elegant steel and timber brise soleil. The architecture of the house aims at conjugating the contemporary use of materials, forms and technologies with both the existing stone buildings and the Mediterranean surrounding landscape into a symbiotic relationship.
