In the wonderful island of Formentera we find this unique house built in 1973 and renovated in 2009. Designed by the architect Paolo Rizzatto, it adhered to structural philosophy, paying special attention to the Mediterranean problems that existed at that time on the island, such as the absence of water, electricity and the high summer temperatures that can be managed.
As for the location, the pine wood was chosen because it is protected by the sun and, after having spent hours at sea, it was considered a perfect option.
The decision was to make a limited investment, thinking it was a vacation home and, therefore, should have been managed at a moderate cost.
The previous project consisted in using the available materials that could be found on the island in the past, using the original stone, the "cotto", the traditional "majolica" and, for the windows, a mysterious wood called "melis". It was made as chosen except the stones too expensive.
In 2009, in the project of the architect Matteo Fantoni, a restructuring of the roof and interior was carried out, to add two bedrooms on the first floor and two full bathrooms.
