Ceglie Messapica (BR), Italy, 2014

Located in the heart of Valle D’Itria, this trullo has been renovated with full respect for the traditional construction techniques of masters trullari. It is a conservative restoration in which some solutions have been found to give habitability and transform the building into a prestigious summer residence. Local limestone, natural lime finishes and essential furnishings are the ingredients of this project.

To spread the knowledge about the construction technique of trulli and enhance the ancient wisdom of local craftsmen we often organize international workshops where architecture students from all over the world can work with the technique handed down by generations of masters trullari. These workshops are often organized in collaboration with Amanda Roelle, architect founder of Archistrati, an organization active in the field of sustainable architecture.
