Located in a coastal town in southern Italy, the Gallipoli House Boat is a contemporary villa overlooking the Ionian Sea. A white, lucid surface forms the exterior facade providing a modern contrast to the area's old town. Internally, a clean, white palette creates a minimalist aesthetic allowing dramatic views framed by floor-to-ceiling windows to become the focus. A sculptural white helical staircase leads between the interior's three stories, starting at the ground floor spa with indoor pool and wellness island. As you go up, the second level houses the bedrooms while the main living areas are above. Glass doors slide open, expanding the space to an outdoor terrace. Encased by a transparent barrier, the pool is afforded unobstructed views of the endless blue waters.
