The location is a street in the centre of Lumino, a few metres from the main square and next to the old municipal building. The project was to convert two small sections, once used for storage, into a single dwelling. The two volumes, compressed between two adjoining walls, face west onto a narrow alley and east onto via Selva, with a difference in elevation between the two roads of about half a storey. The restructuring project retained the original separation into two entities according to the cadastral map. This can be seen in the treatment of the two volumes which appear out of alignment with each other, both in layout and in elevation.
