I tre Bacili: hospitality at home. A widespread hotel between Salento tradition and innovation in green building.
The Application Context
Tre Bacili is an elegant and romantic Salento residence, on the border of the historic center of Spongano (LE), built partly in the late 18th century and partly in the late 19th century. Distinguished by a widespread structure, where you can meet and enjoy your time, and overlooking the sixteenth-century church, it’s one of the most peaceful and comfortable places in the area, with a welcoming and reserved atmosphere that doesn’t renounce the canons of luxury.
Stone, lime and natural wood, colonial and seductive fabrics, use of organic materials, are the value of Tre Bacili, which has decided to follow the modern dictates of green building, under the architectural guidance of the architect Marco Mantovano.
Contemporary and essential furnishings combine with ancient architecture, with the creative reuse of spaces and with eco-compatible materials.
The owners have built the house always thinking about the impact on the environment: disposable products have been reduced as much as possible, providing guests with thermal steel water bottles, refillable ceramic dispensers for locally produced cosmetics, solar thermal panels for the production of hot water, radiant floor systems, as well as internal and external lighting LED (Servomuto and Vibia).

A few steps from the centre of Pescara, an apartment on the top floor of a building under reconstruction, has been equipped with modern technologies for the control of the thermoregulation and for the audio-video system.
The renovation and expansion under the direction of the Primatesta architectural studio, have given life to a spectacular winery, demonstrating, with Conterno's guidelines, that the future can never be separated from respect for history: wood, transparency and suspended tasting rooms.
Perched above the picturesque fishing town of Ammoudi, the property takes inspiration from the traditional Cyclades architecture by combining natural and earthy materials to modern styles and designs.
The building, where the apartment is located, is an example of one of the first high-rise buildings developed in the area of the Mariinsky ensemble.
