The structure stands as a four-story mixed-use building that seamlessly merges tradition and innovation. This architectural gem comprises eight thoughtfully designed residential units and a ground-floor office space. Every aspect of this edifice reflects a dedication to both local craftsmanship and forward-thinking design.
Portal of Expression:
Every window and door in this building narrates a unique story through the artistry of local marble. APS Designs has meticulously conceived a design in which each window and door transforms into a portal, unveiling the rich heritage of Puglia’s marble craftsmanship. These portals stand as a tribute to the region’s artisanal legacy, with local stone painstakingly carved to create distinct entrances that celebrate the intricate mastery of marble.

APS Designs has intricately intertwined the past and present by seamlessly integrating time-honored elements with a contemporary vision. The outcome is a building that not only serves as a physical structure but also acts as a tangible link to the cultural history of the region.
Rooted in Context:
APS Designs focused on more than just constructing a building; they have crafted a cornerstone for the community’s future. This architectural endeavor is not solely about bricks and mortar; it’s about forging a connection between generations. The design embodies Puglia’s legacy, adapting it to the evolving needs and aspirations of the community. This building stands as a testament to the power of architecture in honoring tradition while boldly gazing towards the horizon of progress.
