Case di Luce is an example of sustainable urban regeneration in a densely urbanized area. The site, located in the town of Bisceglie Italy, was a former industrial site that was not in use. All old building structures were demolished and the area cleaned up in order to give way to innovative energy efficiency constructions. Case di Luce is exactly that.  The building features low carbon design which leverages seasonal variations of the solar path in order to optimise the comfort of its tenants.
