Residential Architecture: Saracen Trullo House in Ostuni by Luca Zanaroli: “..Italian architect Luca Zanaroli has designed a contemporary remodel and extension of a saracen trullo, a common rural building found in the Ostuni region of Italy..The client had bought land with olive trees and almond trees, almost at the entrance of the property, a small Saracen trullo (typical rural building in the territory of Ostuni) has been abandoned, with an adjacent structure, a lamia, which remained only part of the perimeter walls..The intention was not only to recover the existing buildings, but also take advantage of the possibility of creating an extension so as to triple the existing surface (originally less than 40 square meters) to establish at least four bedrooms..”  Lovely contemporary refurbishment and extension to an existing structure; ample glazing, natural light, privacy; interesting materiality, vaulted ceilings; indoor / outdoor sensibility..
