The project concerns a private holiday house created from the restoration and enlargement of an abandoned small “trullo” located on a small hill covered with olive and almond trees. “Trulli” are cone-roofed stone buildings typical of Valle d’Itria, a rural area in the south-east of Italy.

The existing building had four “coni” (cone-roofs) with a central room. The building has been completely restored and enlarged creating new spaces and rooms following the owner’s requirements. The total net area is 125 square meters on a large estate of 14.000 square meters.

The project takes particular care to using materials and building systems typical of the area. The builder brought his experience of “maestro trullaro”, a builder specialized in these typical houses. The handmade stone bricks walls are very thick in order to protect from heat and the vaulted roof has rainwater recovery. Following these traditional principles you can assure internal comfort and good temperature also in summertime. A pool is integrated in the landscape in front of the house, where you have a nice view on the surrounding olive trees countryside.
