Casa Albanese in Pantelleria, Italy

Let me take you with me on a short trip to Pantelleria. Oh, you don't know where this is? Well, neither did I until a few hours ago, despite the fact that this place is actually very close to Crete. So, Pantelleria is a tiny volcanic island in the Mediterranean sea, somewhere between Sicily and Tunisia. There, architect Flavio Albanese renovated one typical dammusi complex (a group of traditional buildings made of thick, double dry-masonry walls in lavic stone and obsidian) into a stunning summer home. I'm ecstatic about this place! I adore and completely empathise with the stark stone and dusty surroundings and the way the architecture is seamlessly adjusted into the environment. I'm not going to start on the stucco surfaces, the built in furniture, the sandy hues, the leveled interiors and the contrasting sleek contemporary design. All I know is that I'm dying for some lazy hours under the palm trees, some laps up and down the pool and to let my soul soak in all this divine architecture ^^

  1. Αυτό το σπίτι eίναι πραγματικά υπέροχο. Tο είχα δει πρώτη φορά πριν από χρόνια σε ένα ελληνικό περιοδικό και μου είχε κάνει τόση εντύπωση που ακόμα το αναγνωρίζω όπου το δω.

    This house is simply wonderful. I first saw it many years ago; it was featured in a Greek deco mag and it really left a lasting impression on me.
