Milan-based A2BC Architects merged ancient and modern in their overhaul of a crumbling farmhouse on the terraced hillside of Cinque Terre in Liguria, Italy. They shored up the existing structure, plastered the interiors, replaced the flooring with polished concrete throughout, and added black steel windows to frame the views. Here’s a look inside (and out).
