A re-conversion project of the existing terrace which was deteriorated due to water leaks and little maintenance. It was decided to take advantage of the existing metal structure and cover the supports with a clay wedge in order to simulate pilasters and foundations. Other elements that could be reused were the glass of the railing and the stringers based on assembled profiles. The result was perfectly integrated with the property thanks to the appropriate choice of materials and the formal proportion of the roof.
