The project consists in a private holiday house with pool derived from the refurbishment and enlargement of an abandoned small “trullo” located on a small hill covered by olive and almond trees. “Trulli” are cone-roofed stone building typical of Valle d’Itria, a rural area in the south-east of Italy. The existing building had four “coni” (cone-roof) with a central room. The building was completely restored and enlarged creating new spaces and rooms following the owner’s requirements. The project had particular care in using materials and building systems typical of the area. The builder brought his experience of “maestro trullaro”, a builder specialized in these typical houses.
