CASA SABIR, ORTIGIA ISLAND
The renovation of this home was like a process of subtraction which was undertaken after discovering, almost by chance, the traces of the original 1900’s decorated plaster under the most recent wall paintings. Bringing them back to the surface was like, in a sculpture, cutting away the parts of material that hide the soul of the work. In this way we gave new life to the essence of this place, immersed in the colors of the South.
As a nude in its real skin, undressed by its unnatural clothes, this home, now made light and free again, appropriates itself again of its identity to accept harmoniously the new contemporary features.
