A Country House in Chievo by Studio Wok
Zuzanna Gasior
Nov 16, 2020

Part restoration and part modern insertion, Studio Wok described creating the country home in Chievo as a process of "subtraction" and "addition".

The new home has been built into a section of the barn of an agricultural court at the gates of Verona, Italy, near the river Adige. The house introduces a ‘spatial and material dialogue between history and modernity,’ and was conceived with minimal impact on the surrounding environment. This aspect of sustainability was ensured with the use of efficient technical devices and systems as well as natural materials. The surrounding garden — with its preserved magnolia tree — had also been redesigned and integrated into the project.
