In the picturesque landscape of Puglia, Italy, with its red earth and ancient olive trees, a residence emerges. Puglia consists of two distinct elements: a main house and a studio house, two independent volumes that intertwine through a courtyard.
Puglia takes the form of an “L” created from the built volumes. The central courtyard serves as an entry and welcoming space, where nature and architecture harmoniously merge. While the main courtyard welcomes the common areas, the private areas are oriented toward smaller courtyards or less central panoramic views, thus creating a diversified experience.
The deconstruction of the “L” comes to life from a tree that stands as a monument to nature. Furthermore, the use of local stone as the primary material reinforces Puglia’s connection to its environment.
