Designed and planned by Paris architect and interior designer Fabrice Bejjani, Villa Pouilles combines his signature style of warm and contemporary with simple and luxurious. It’s the perfect mirror to the villa’s picturesque location in the valleys of Puglia, Italy.
Inspired by the Trullo – a conical shaped construction typically found in the Valle D’Itria area in Puglia – Bejjani has created a modern take on this traditional architecture. The project consists of three buildings that flow together, linked by the lamia, a cube-shaped house also typical of the region, which has been restored alongside the trullo. The villa is washed in startling natural light and opened up to take full advantage of the landscape, with endless fields of olive trees providing an exquisite vista.
Fabrice has cleverly used materials that are typical of the southern Italian region, including Trani marble and walnut wood, as well as custom made furniture and a beautiful selection of fabrics. The result is a welcoming space that gives the impression of a relaxed, contemporary home or retreat, whilst retaining a sense of rustic charm.
