THE PLACE OF FAIRY TALES: THE TURNKEY RENOVATION OF A COMPLEX OF TRULLI IN MARTINA FRANCA

28 October 2019

A house that looks more like a place from fairy tales.

A house in which the edges seem blunted, in which time seems suspended, in which the hard and geometric lines give way to the warmth and the wonderful imperfection of stone.

It is a house, the one we are about to present to you, to which we are particularly attached, because here each of the three generations of the Edilserra family/company has left its mark: a renovation begun more than twenty years ago with grandfather Francesco, then carried out by father Donato and recently concluded by the youngest of the family, Francesco.

We are in the countryside of Martina Franca, a few kilometers from Alberobello: particular sign of this private house - which makes it unique and original compared to the other thousands of Trulli scattered in the Itria Valley - is the presence of a cummersa (structure with the pointed roof covered with chiancarelle) squeezed between two cones that creates a particular game of shapes and volumes.

Our turnkey intervention involved the entire renovation of the house and the realization, in the external part, of a skimmer pool.

Let's start with the interiors: the 60 square meters of which the house is composed - intended as a living room with a small kitchen, two bedrooms, and bathroom - have been renovated trying to balance aesthetics and functionality, creating a result beautiful to the eye and practical in use. So we fixed the floors, made the fireplace and the heating system, eliminated the old plaster bringing back the exposed stone, an extension of that nature typical of the Apulian countryside.

Finally, we realized a completely new element, a skimmer swimming pool surrounded by secular olive trees, in a total continuity between inside and outside, where the stone remains the absolute protagonist, for a way of living that goes beyond the boundaries of time, a space that connects man with his most ancient rocky ancestors.
