Located on a sub-peninsula in south-east Italy, a few kilometers from the sea, architect Massimo Iosa Ghini built a “old” new dwelling immersed in the countryside and in the midst of nature.

The building in a unique Mediterranean setting and in harmony with the surrounding seascape, with age-old olive trees and maritime pines.

The project uses the local Chianca stone for the outdoor paving, large panels of porcelain stoneware for the inside, Acquarica tuff for façade cladding, Lecce stone for the fireplace inside and even the use of dry-stone for the old pajara barrel roof.

The most striking part of the house is a structure in acid-treated wood that works as a pergola and supports the branches, in the outdoor living area near the main living room.

A large living area of six meters long facing south makes a whole with the dining-kitchen zone and becomes the family hangout; surrounded by four bedrooms with their own vestibules and baths.
