As part of the movement to renovate the disused farmland, the modern architecture is transforming the appearance of the Ragusa region in Sicily. This breathtaking project by Architrend remains true to local history and integrates elements from the traditional Mediterranean architectural style, such as white gypsum walls, a dynamic pitched roof or a residential complex with a courtyard. Originally, this area was full of thick-walled, isolated farms.

Isolation can also be viewed positively because it guarantees more privacy. In any case, there is a risk of feeling cut off from the world. The modern architecture this bright and spacious home helps to remove the feeling of being alone.

The technical basis for the modern architecture is the use of reinforced concrete as a building material, which facilitated the installation of the floor-to-ceiling window front. On the one hand, these great windows protect against unfriendly weather and provide security, on the other hand, the residents can enjoy the surroundings to the maximum. The house opens up to the world, although at the same time it separates itself from other buildings.
