BARCHESSA, VILLA BADOER TRISSINO 
Andrzej Pereswet Soltan’s restoration and conservative refitting has breathed new life in to the barchessa building at Villa Badoer Trissino (now Villa Trettenero), in Cricoli near Vicenza.This barchessa is a 19th-century construction, used as stables and to store the hay needed by the estate of the historical Villa Badoer Trissino, a Gothic-era construction that was overhauled in Renaissance style between 1530 and 1538 for Gian Giorgio Trissino. The restoration involved relatively limited, non-invasive work designed to preserve the environmental, structural and stylistic features of the complex. The indoor volume of the barchessa is a large open space across three floors where the use of vertical partitions was kept to a minimum. It houses offices, meeting rooms, storage areas and bathrooms. Three flights of stairs with lifts and bathrooms were added to the original load-bearing structure, and the original brick and stone pillars were reinforced with metal structures to support the weight of the new wooden ceiling. It was no simple task to work out which windows were best suited to the façade’s defining feature, the large rounded arches. The choice eventually fell on Astec’s ABX Architectural Bronze Extrusion technology, using extruded architectural bronze profiles (series W65 and K85) with medium burnishing. These thin profiles provide exceptional performance in terms of wind and water resistance, air permeability, heat insulation and sound proofing. The windows were created, within the arches, by using three horizontal bands that were, in turn, divided into sections, some of which are fixed and other of which can be opened. Astec also created the railings for the second floor, the entrance door in burnished bronze (including an external canopy) and the cladding for the stringcourses, with the addition of indoor seats.
