The building is located in the oldest part of Ragusa where streets are running parallel at different levels. The project is about the renovation of a portion of the factory originally used for the production and the sale of the traditional cheese. The building, over the years, has been transformed and modified several times. The solution adopted was to create a courtyard by removing a volume from the section of the building. Such a decision clearly reduces the living space but it brings considerable benefits and allows an optimal reorganization of the spaces making the new void the heart of the building. Each room gives onto the new internal court on the southern side; the house is closed on itself, ensuring more privacy and distance from the neighbourhood.
