This work restores the original architecture by removing subsequent construction elements that distorted and blurred the building. The intervention clarifies the volume and simultaneously, brings out visual penetrability and permeability to the bottom floor, until the inner adjoining landscape is absorbed. The restoration increases the building's unity and consistency providing the shelter's cover with continuity along its entire length, thereby breaking the symmetry of the two gables and taking in the existing terrace. This aspect is notably appreciated in the castle's south façade, where the building emerges from the rocks that extend throughout the closures. This clearly expresses that "less is more".
