About Casa AL
Nestled in the heart of Valle d’Itria, Cisternino, lies Casa AL—a fusion of traditional trulli and lamie structures, deeply rooted in Puglia’s architectural tapestry. Memola Estudio revitalizes a cherished childhood home, blending the charm of ancient trulli with modern-day functionalities.
Blending Old with New
The project breathes life into the old home, ensuring every space serves a purpose.
Strategic Space Allocation
Two trulli have been transformed into bedrooms—a quaint suite and a child’s room. Meanwhile, the lamia welcomes you to a vibrant living and kitchen space.
Mastering Modern Living
The remaining structure houses a master bedroom complete with an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet. Additionally, a separate bathroom caters to guests.
