In a virtuous connection between past and present and thanks to an attentive planning, each new architectural element fits harmoniously into the existing space. The restoration brings back charm and value to a building being an integral part in the history and city urban design, by enhancing the essence of its stunning architecture. In Palazzo del Carretto di Gorzegno, luxury apartments and offices will be built according to a careful planning for the preservation of architectural and artistic elements thus enhancing them with the aim to create added value to the modern concept of living in a truly unique and prestigious residence. Below the courtyard and the internal wings, a garage has been built. The restoration work, entrusted to the restorers of Consorzio San Luca, plans on bringing to light the brightness of pure gold, the colours of the frescoes, those of the coffered ceilings and on freeing the stuccoes from the layers which have changed the quality of the shaped items, by operating in the context of conservative intervention and in accordance with the modern preservation principles. The use of avant-garde materials and technologies allows to operate according to the latest energy saving and eco-compatibility standards: all the floors are made with natural and breathable materials and a system of sound-deadening and radiating panels is to be provided; the photocatalytic paints hold high resistance to light and antipollution and antibacterial properties. The installation of a polyvalent refrigeration unit allows lower CO2 emissions and optimization of thermal and energy performance, by exploiting the free energy supplied by the extraction of well water.
