La Torre Bianca

Dos Architects has designed La Torre Bianca in Salento, Italy.

This project sits within a dense urban context near the historic town centre and along a footpath named Ciolo. La Torre Binaca house is located in Gagliano del Capo, a quiet village in the heart of Salento, the southernmost region of Apulia that stretches at the "heel of the Italian boot" in south-eastern Italy.

The house, designed by architect Lorenzo Grifantini, director of Dos Architects, is located within the regional park that extends between the rocky Adriatic coast and the white beaches of the Ionian Sea.

From inception, the design of the house sought to establish a dialogue with the existing urban fabric – reflecting the relationship between the openness of the pedestrian streetscape and the privacy of daily family life.

The house's architecture is deliberately austere to allow the natural elements to fill the space naturally. The interplay of light and shadow onto the white surfaces of the volumes produces an ever-changing backdrop to the life inside the house.

This project has been longlisted in the urban house category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
