Casa Pinto by Insite Architetture

Insite Architetture designed this stunning single-story country house, located in Salento, Italy in 2017. Surrounded by olive trees, the former 50’s style house was completely redesigned by adding two volumes, one for the bedrooms and the other  one for the kitchen. The facades are painted white to convey a minimalist aesthetic. Take a look at the complete story after the jump.

From the architects: Casa Pinto is a country house surrounded by the olive trees in Salento, the southest area of Apulia region. It was designed by Insite Architetture Studio that consists of three young professionals in architecture and engineering.

The front kept the facade of the previous 50’s house, typical in this area, and the back, totally white, is characterized by basic volume shapes and windows with a beautiful view.

Two volumes were added to the previous unit, the first for the bedrooms and the second for the kitchen, converting the map into a horseshoe shape with a swimming pool in the middle similar to a roman impluvium.


Outside the flooring is totally white (Trani’s stones), except for the wood flooring next to the pool.

The interior finishings lend the house a minimal design with the resin flooring, rough plaster, flush to the wall doors and integrated lighting.
