Ancient Puglian Stone Comes Back to Life

Nominated by Archilovers among the 1000 best projects in the world, and named after the ancient Greek word for silence, this peaceful vacation home rental in Italy’s Salento region was restored from a rural building dating back to the 17th century. 

Constructed of locally quarried stone that the peninsula has produced for centuries, the home was renovated to highlight and preserve its natural beauty and historic and cultural significance. 

Inspired by the structural design and attributes of the nearby monastery of San Nicola di Casola, local craftsmen carefully and authentically rehabilitated the structure, revealing the graceful arches and historic features while infusing it with a few spirited modern elements. A soothing neutral palette and a decorative crosshatch design motif is repeated throughout the house and featured on many of the artisanal furnishings and decor designed by the owner.  The home also features a ceramic collection inspired by the theme of silence, created by the architect and artist Vincenzo D’Alba from Kiasmo.

The sheltered rooftop terrace and pool is a rarity in these parts and provides a little oasis in serene privacy.

Special

A special monthly rate of €2,000 is available for October 2020.

The all-in-one living space includes a fully equipped kitchen and dining space and lounge space that opens out to the terrace. There is one bedroom that can sleep three and one bathroom. 

The external spaces also recall the architectural traditions of the Salento region, with the terrace and newly designed pool crafted from the beautifully restored stone.
