Photographer: Carola Ripamonti


The romantic experience of “Grand Tour” revolved around discovering the distinctive nature of every individual location by studying the traditions and culture of the various countries involved. This idea of a journey of discovery in Apulia through forms of popular culture, which generally refer to the sensibility, sentiments and iconic traits characterising Italian culture in southern Italy in particular, provides the starting point for the architects’ process of design for restructuring this 200 m² apartment close to the old part of Bari.

We wanted to create a dynamic setting while maintaining the connection with the “COMPOLUX” area that was inspired by a cozy European park. Hence, we decided on the “mobile amusement park” that is held at parks as the design theme. (more…)
