“Countryside Home” In Salento, Italy

October 11, 2011

“Countryside Home” in Salento, a single family residence located in the countryside of Morciano di Leuca, Italy was created 
by Bologna-based architect Luca Zanaroli.

The dwelling’s rustic shell is formed from the abandoned remnants of two historic structures once used as a temporary shelter for local farmers.

A covered veranda within the enclosed courtyard provides 
inhabitants with an open-air shelter from the hot Mediterranean climate.

Inside the building, minimalist furnishings draw attention to the restored barrel vaults and domes constructed with
locally sourced stone dating from the late 1800s.
