Torre di Moravola, medieval modernism.

Torre di Moravola is a 12th C retreat created from a medieval watchtower situated on a mountainside overlooking the Carpini valley in Umbria, Italy.

Outbuildings, gardens, terraces and a 25 metre infinity pool are aligned on an axis with the tower to maximise the dramatic 360 degree views over secluded valleys, unchanged for centuries, giving the sensation of being totally removed from the modern world.

Compound in the dunes by Ike Kligerman Barkley.

Compound in the dunes by Ike Kligerman Barkley is on a rolling site overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this beach house brings together two contrasting ideas – nineteenth century Shingle Style design, and a contemporary preference for material and textural expression over architectural detail. While the exterior captures the local design aesthetic, the interior treats light, space and surface in a distinctly modern fashion. Photographer: Peter Aaron / Esto.

Rustic House La Finca by UXUS.

La Finca by UXUS is located in one of the most picturesque villages in Mallorca, this rustic Spanish farm from the 13th century was transformed into a private family holiday residence. The interior atmosphere was designed as an eclectic balance between the comfortable rustic and clean sophistication. La Finca’s landscape design was inspired by the rough and dramatic Mallorcan terrain, which surrounds the property. Its gardens incorporate an orchard, ancient olive trees, a guesthouse and a 15 meter pool. The swimming pool is the centerpiece of the garden and is designed to appear suspended over the property’s orange orchard. The overall objective of La Finca was to visually blend the existing house, the natural surroundings and the new construction into a harmonious whole.
