La Tensa

This farmhouse is located 5 km from Domodossola. La Tensa is an ancient village upon Domodossola which was inhabited until the early sixties.
Since then, the buildings, deprived of the human care, went towards a progressive deterioration.
Meanwhile, the lands on the typical terraces were encroached by the forests. The recovery works of the area, done by the company Leponzia, began in the early 2000s and were completed at the end of 2009.
The intervention was performed in compliance with the construction typology of the territory using mostly local stone and timber.
