On the hills on the south-west side of the province of Bolzano, along the renowned wine route, amidst vineyards and small forests, one can admire original private villas built in recent years.
In the 1950s and 1960s, after the Second World War, many citizens moved from the city center to these hills to enjoy greater peace and an exclusive view of the surrounding peaks.
This is the scenery in which Villa EB is set. Villa EB is a semi-detached residence created after a complex renovation of a old villa built in the early 1960s. Although the previous residence had high living standards and it was built with top-quality materials and finishes, it however showed all the limitations of a house designed according to the canons of the time, for example: a very closed envelope, with a very low ratio between glass surfaces and solid walls, with few views of the landscape and very low ceilings.
