recreation resort concept developed by so + so studio


so + so studio offers panoramic views, nature walks, and a merging of past and present architecture in a conceptual recreation resort. the project attracts tourists as a cultural gateway, where visitors can relax, dine, and soak up the sun within the immediate vicinity of the murro di porco lighthouse in southeastern sicily. besides re-activating the landmark, the concept includes the creation of an info center, botanical garden, and full-service café.
