Open-Air Home

"It's the house I wanted to build for a long time," says Italian-born Davide. "There is nothing that separates us from the outdoors."

Davide Pugliese and his Australian wife, Cele, inspired by their sailing adventures around the world, relied on innovative materials, state-of-the-art building technologies, and artistic flourish to create their one-of-a-kind, open-air house. "We enjoy being surrounded by the elements," Davide says. "We like being in the sun, the wind, and the sea when we're sailing, and now also in our home."
