This wonderful house of a rustic style is located in Salento, near Salve in Italy, a few kilometers from the sea. It is a place to escape from the boring routine of life, immersed in the countryside and in the middle of nature, with millenary olive trees and maritime pines, surrounded by one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes.
It was designed in 2014 by the interior design studio Iosa Ghini Associati. In a unique Mediterranean environment, and in harmony with the surrounding marine landscape, Massimo Iosa Ghini has chosen to build a new house that integrates it with the very land, adopting techniques and materials suggested by local craftsmen and builders.
Arranged in a single level and in an extension of more or less than one hectare, the project respects the existing vegetation.
A large living room of six meters in length, facing south, merges with the kitchen and dining area and becomes the family gathering place, surrounded by four rooms with their own lobbies and bathrooms.
The large windows look outwards and are designed as a natural continuation of the interior space, with the external areas facing the terraces designed as a meeting place with armchairs, and underline the constant relationship between exterior and interior spaces.
