The challenge was to maintain the original charm, given by some very special features and rich details, adapting it to the needs and taste of the new owners. The house needed overall repair, and all the wiring and plumbing had to be replaced. Zest went for A-rating energy consumption label with complete insulation of the facade, finished in dark grey. The facade of the lower floor, which had an original finishing in local stone, has been insulated on the interior. Both the roof and the ground floor were insulated as well.
