Farace House

Lillo Giglia Architect as Architects

The Project tackles the delicate topic of integrating a contemporary artifact in the Old Town of Favara (Sicily), in a consolidated frame of row houses.


Knowing the urban tissue, the project management reveals a conscious contemporaneity, based on the building know-how and the ability to obtain high-quality housing outcomes, reflecting the evolving requirements and performances which merge into a complex dimension of the “physics of the building”. Giglia’s Project follows these parameters of attention, rationality and expressivity. The result is simply amazing: a white strong gem proudly set in the surrounding urban fabric – showing a low architectural value – linked with the city through small holes and scenic overlooks on the Old Town.
