These five monastery guesthouses in the province of Grosseto in central Italy are the perfect example of sustainable living. Not only are these huts made from 100% recyclable materials, they are elevated off the ground to ensure minimal disturbance to the beautiful rural setting.
Designed by Edoardo Milesi and Archos, these minimalist monastery guesthouses reflect the monastics’ ascetic lifestyle in the Siloe community. The Monastery Complex of Siloe comprises five guesthouse units set outside monastery grounds against a hilly backdrop crisscrossed with trails.
Approximately 33 square meters in size, each guesthouse comprises a bedroom, bathroom, open-plan living room with a dining area and kitchenette, a north-facing balcony and a south-facing loggia.
