LDF House (2012) by Gaetano Gulino and Albanian Saints located in Italy on a promontory overlooking the Sea of Africa. The house consists of two volumes connected by a pergola. The largest of the two bodies is the result of the reconstruction and expansion of an existing ruin. The intent was to rebuild respect for the elements of local tradition trying to make the volume as “essential” as possible. The L-shaped building consists of a part with a pitched roof where the living area of the dwelling is located, to which a lower volume is connected with a flat roof, where the sleeping area is provided. The second building intended for an outbuilding is the result of the re-functionalization of an existing warehouse. A small technical room located behind the annex becomes an element of separation between the pool area and a completed vegetable garden. The walls of the vegetable garden, with a maximum height of 2 meters, contribute to give compactness to the whole system by putting in direct relation, both formal and functional, the group of buildings. Formally, the project is expressed in elements that refer to “pure” volumes that, “linked” to each other by a system of walls, acquire “complexity”; from the organism of the complex a series of “intimate” spaces are generated where the elements of the landscape are “selected”.
