The apartment is located on the sixth floor of a rigorous palace built in the early twentieth century. The linear simplicity and elegance of the existing interior finishes suggest a clear line for the intervention, in continuity with the spirit of the place.
The strategy used to select the finishes is balanced by the decision to interpret the interior space in a new way, even in its small size. The intervention thus returns an immediate reading of the environment. Punctual changes compared to the original plan have been made to emphasize the peculiarities of this small but valuable apartment and to optimize the living spaces.
The main, and most significant, was to place the dining area where the bathroom was originally located, repositioned near the entrance area, thus freeing the facade to create a path through the rooms that enhances the external view and amplifies the perception of the interior space. A classic apartment conceived with new logics and geometries. The wall without doors that separates the living area from the sleeping area is conceived more as a perspective connection than as a physical separation
