Casa Solari

Restored house in Ceglie Messapica

To understand Casa Solari, a sold project of a restored house in Ceglie Messapica and exemple of our architecture in Puglia, it was important to understand its setting. A careful study of its features, both material (morphology, nature and vegetation, etc.) and immaterial (atmosphere, emotions, sounds, etc.) allowed us to shape the architecture of Casa Solari in a close dialogue with its context, avoiding the pre-existing choices of a top-down project unsuitable for the site. The property is located on the southwest boundary of the Valle D’Itria and was planned as a holiday home. The design takes its cue from the terraces of dry stone walls so typical of the area; the stone cladding on the façade creates the desired effect, namely a seamless blend with the natural surroundings. It proved possible to create a rapport, in terms of materials and colour, between the building and the landscape. Trullo Solari, the newly restored trullo, will accommodate eight people in beautiful, green comfort. The interiors of a traditional Puglian trullo have been fully modernised to provide comfortable spacious living. Perfect for one or two families or a group of friends, you will love the house and its serene privacy. Surrounded by olive groves and fruit trees, simply relax by the private, heated pool, or explore the local vibrant towns and beaches. Trullo Solari is a luxury property set in five acres of peaceful countryside, just 2km from Ceglie Messapica and 10km from Ostuni in Puglia, Southern Italy. Because only minimal work on the external space was undertaken, an impression of immersion in the virgin countryside of the Valle D’Itria has been achieved, guaranteeing maximum relaxation for the villa’s guests. Although more expensive for the owner, we paired active energy solutions with passive solutions that bring the building in line with its setting and local culture. During the initial phase of the project, we observed the site and its microclimate (orientation, prevailing winds, sun direction, etc.) and related these elements to our design choices, determining the geometry, thickness of the walls and, of course, the most appropriate materials to use.
