Is it true that when you can not travel with my feet do you find yourself with the imagination…The fact is that lately I come across often in places where I could more than willing to rest my weary limbs. And so in my hot summer without vacation(obvious… well rewarded by the arrival of my pupetto….but the holiday is a holiday) when I saw this wonderful renovation of an ancient Saracen trullo I thought it was really a dream and that I would love to be there…..
The restructuring, by architect Luke Zanaroli,has tripled the volume of the ancient trullo (starting from an existing surface of a little less than 40 square feet) harmonizing perfectly with new and old building with a uniformity and continuity of surface materials and colors and paths.
Furnishings and neutral materials and minimal ( very few contemporaries such as iron sheet, raw and oxidized, used for the coating of kitchen doors) location are perfect in the context, emphasizing the elegance of the original features of the trulli which have been masterfully restored. The walls covered with cement mortar and the floors are identical in all rooms of the house and tie the various volumes reflect the warm light of the south.
Take your cue from: the coating of wood planks of the patio and outside wall , a walkway made of stones from the original circular cut, the gazebo by the pool with lounge built in masonry, the opening of light above the kitchen, works of art on the walls, the curtains of the room with a big knot that rests gently on the ground.
