Dagilupi Farmhouse by Corsaro Architetti



Dagilupi Farmhouse is a traditional guest house located in Ostuni, Italy, redesigned in 2019 by Corsaro Architetti.

The objective of the project was to restore an abandoned rural building and transform it into a guest house. Dating from the seventeenth century, the building is nestled in a 5-hectare olive grove with mostly thousand-year-old olive trees. Between the town of Ostuni and the Adriatic coast.

On the surface, the 300m2 building controls access to the mill and houses functional spaces and living rooms. At the back of the building a courtyard, surrounded by high dry-stone walls that protect it from the sea breeze, houses a wood oven. The building is typical of the agricultural constructions of the region, with thick walls made of irregular stone blocks, poor earth-based mortar, and vaulted rooms. During its history it has been used partly as a dwelling and partly as a space for various agricultural activities (yard, stables, storage, underground oil mill, etc.).
The restoration strategy aimed at preserving the existing structures without denying the interventions to adapt the building to its future function as a guest house: guaranteeing private access to the rooms/suites, proposing modern and spacious bathrooms, ...
