The project involves for the construction of a new holiday residence in the Countryside of Ostuni. The house was constructed on the highest part of the property to have the view of the surrounding valley and was integrated in the natural slope with a containing wall in local stone. The project had particular care in using materials and building systems typical of the area. The handmade stone bricks walls are very thick in order to protect from heat and the roof has rainwater recovery.

Following these traditional principles you can assure internal comfort and good temperature also in summertime. On the property there was a small “lamia” which was maintained as guesthouse, together  with the new volume the lamia creates an entrance courtyard with exterior kitchen. The house in its final layout features: two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, kitchen and dining. In the original lamia an independent bedroom with a small living room and bathroom.
