Capri Island | Amalfi Coast, Southern Italy

The Amalfi Coast is a stretch of coastline on the southern coast of the Sorrentine Peninsula in the Province of Salerno in Southern Italy. It’s a popular tourist destination for the region and Italy as a whole, attracting thousands of tourists annually. In 1997, the Amalfi Coast was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a cultural landscape.

In the 1950s Capri Island became a popular destination. In summer, the island is heavily visited by tourists, especially by day trippers from Naples and Sorrento.

It’s one of several sea caves, worldwide, that is flooded with a brilliant blue light. Sunlight, passing through an underwater cavity and shining through the seawater, creates a blue reflection that illuminates the cavern.

Caprisuite is a small charming hotel consists of only two rooms, both with private bathrooms. The rooms enjoy the exclusive use of certain areas: the inner courtyard for romantic dinners in garden, the lodge for breakfast time and the living room with its fireplace. (There are many hotels on the island, but I loved the design of this one.)

I love it !!


When I saw this project in archdaily I was like “Wow” . :) It is definitely my style. Hope you will like it as much as I do.
“The idea is to build a small piece of architecture, a cabin, perhaps a nest, on high, at the top of a cliff, on a monument, on a public building, it doesn’t matter where but in a beautiful place and with a beautiful and original view. The idea is then to create a restaurant and welcome clients in an enchanting, unique place with sophisticated dishes cooked in Electrolux kitchens. The idea is to keep it open for six months and then change location, change city, nation, continent and reinstate this restaurant-type object on some other roof for new surprises, new menus, new clients.” via archdaily

Когато видях този проект в страницата на archdaily реших, че трябва да го споделя, определяно е мой стил. :) Надявам се и вие да го харесате колкото аз.
“Идеята е да се изгради една малка частица архитектурата, кабина, може би гнездо на високо, на върха на скала, върху паметник, над обществена сграда, не е от значение къде, но в едно красиво място и с красива и оригинална гледка. Идеята е след това да се създаде един ресторант и да се посрещат клиенти в приказно, уникално място с изискани ястия, приготвени в  кухни Electrolux. Идеята е да се запази в продължение на шест месеца и след това да се промени местоположението, града, нацията,  континента и да се възстанови този обект тип ресторант на някой друг покрив за нови изненади, нови менюта, нови клиенти. ” от archdaily
