Villa Cardo

A series of minimal white blocks interlock to form this holiday home which takes cues from local architecture in Puglia.

Date: 2019

Made by:

Location: Puglia, Italy

Named Villa Cardo, the four-bedroom dwelling is designed for a couple who wanted a peaceful summer retreat amidst olive groves in Carovigno, a town in the south of Italy.

Studio Andrew Trotter modelled the residence on traditional cubic houses found across Puglia to ensure that it complements its surroundings.

By using local construction techniques the studio made sure the building is light, airy and cool.
