Artist Gaetano Pesce was commissioned to design the house and landscape of a hectare of olive trees in Puglia, Italy. Commissioned by gallery owner Caterina Tognon, the houses are portraits of her and her husband, with the bathrooms representing her two children.

Gaetano Pesce worked with architect Gabriele Pimpini and Cosimo Cardone, to make a contemporary piece of Italian architecture that suits its historical context. The house is primarily made of polyurethane, a versatile material which insulates and is eco-friendly as it was made to accumulate thermal energy.
