Living spaces transcend domestic norms becoming a living dialogue between old knowledge and contemporary creativity. We cooperate with local aspiring designers and artisans to design spaces, treating rooms as a blank canvas to explore local aesthetics and contemporary issues. Experience holds a number of events and workshops including yoga classes, furniture design, sewing lessons, concerts, and traditional cooking classes as a way for guests to participate in creative cultural exchanges.

The concept of Experience emerges from the fields of art and design to create a diverse international community while maintaining the spirit of Puglia?s lively capital. The concept of building community is crucial to designing an alternative and sustainable future. Through reimagining history and culture this project aspires to create a supportive platform and network for local and international artists.
