Roccamandolfi castle is surrounded by a picturesque landscape where we can find sky, woods, rocks and sun.
We truly stand for a new architecture as a subtle complement of the Mother Nature and ruins design, a place to tiptoe the landscape in order to give functionality to the place and to add value to the breathtaking landscape.
Our strategy is to develop a meaningful dialogue between the existing and the new.
As a result, all the pre-existences brought us to create single wood cabins arranged throughout the landscape. This modular system provides you with the basics to stay and it offers the option to add external elements to create a self-adjusting zone to improve the activities beside each cabin.
