Lapis & Lignum

In a community where family values are deeply cherished, and considering the project assignment and the clients’ desire to preserve as much of the building as possible for future generations, an idea was conceived. Rooted in heritage and bolstered by generational synergy, the concept of “where the old kisses the new” emerged as the guiding principle.

The houses are named after Latin words for the oldest building elements, namely stone and wood, giving rise to Lapis and Lignum. The opportunity to reconstruct one building while demolishing the other further fueled the concept. The reconstructed structure, Lapis, embodies a rustic charm in a contemporary rendition, while the newly built facility, Lignum, incorporates rustic details within a modern context.
