CAPRI SUITE by ARCHITECT GIULIANO ANDREA DELL' UVA

The old structure, located in the heart of Anacapri, a pretty village situated at the foot of Mount Solaro, is located in the spaces once attached to the convent of the church of San Michele. The loggia, overlooking the lovely internal courtyard and that once connected the church of San Michele to the convent, is now the area where breakfast is served: the natural stone wall treated with whitewash – a typical technique of the island's architecture – reveals the stratification of the structure over the centuries. The contrast is given by the furnishing, design icons from the mid-twentieth century designed by Gio Ponti and by the lemon yellow colour, which is the dominant colour theme in the house.The original lime colours, different shades of azure or turquoise, found under several layers of paint, provide the backdrop to the modern furniture, creating a striking stylistic contrast.

''TRULLO SARACENO'' in OSTUNI,ITALY

Architect Luca Zanaroli from Emilia in Italy has just completed the renovation of a small Trullo Saraceno (local rural building) in the countryside of Ostuni, in Puglia southern Italy.The interior design is characterized by the choice of “contaminating” the rural atmosphere with the use of colours and materials such as iron sheets (untreated and oxidized) used on the neutral and minimal kitchen cupboards, which fit harmoniously into the environment without altering the original quality and features, but enhance them. The furniture is minimal and is an integral part of the building fitting in perfectly with the architecture. The objects, all local handcrafted ones, are the result of personal research carried out by architect Zanaroli in the local territory.
