Over the years, the building and the whole neighborhood probably underwent several alterations. The restoration of the existing part has been complemented with an addition on the side of the back yard.

The external surface of this additional volume is entirely covered in wooden staves, to enhance its shape and mark the contrast with the pre-existing structure. New openings have been realized on the backside of the house, with the aim of framing the beautiful view on the church.
