Two "work in progress": two different stages and two different latitudes. Sicily Casa 1: lights are hanging, two kitchens and three bathrooms are nearly finished. The external "cocciopesto" floor, is completed. Deadline: 13 December! Raffaella Anzaldo, who is the project architect and project manager for this intervention, needs all my "remotely energy" to wish all runs smoothly along the last phase of this very challenging work.

It looks like being on holiday. That's because I love my job! Corten steell frames windows are on. The bespoke bathtub is in place. Heating system and thermal coating nearly finished. We are waiting for wood windows, photovoltaic panels installation, and there are lots of things to decide and to itemise yet.

Casa 1 is a private house in a small Sicilian municipality on the hills between Mount Etna and Catania's coast. I am working on this project as a design consultant for architect Raffaella Anzaldo.
