Starting from the client's main need to obtain a second single bedroom, in addition to the currently existing ones, the design of this apartment located in an "old Milanese" building led us in the direction of a radical overhaul of the layout plan. The demolition project, in fact, provides for an almost total reinterpretation of the spatial configuration and materials. The only exceptions are the carpentry elements with geometric moldings as well as the splendid olive wood parquet in the master bedroom.
A sliding door in wood and glass with an arched fanlight separates the living room from the kitchen, but at the same time connects the two rooms. The kitchen with the island rotated 90 degrees with respect to the standard configuration assumes this input and becomes the fulcrum of domestic life and social relationships.
The floor plan develops from a neutral first environment, the choice of light finishes makes the space seem larger and invites to discover the unpredictable heart of the apartment.
The master bathroom is the element of surprise: strongly characterized by the intense teal tone of the Zellige ceramic, which covers the floor and walls, in chromatic dialogue with the white Carrara marble of the washbasin cabinet, creates an almost mystical environment in total contrast with the rest of the apartment.
Custom wardrobes, a constant in our interior projects, participate uniformly in the organization of space. A system of containment and separation elements equips the living room. The hallway that distributes the rooms is instead equipped with a symmetrical "bussola" made of carpentry that integrates access doors and containment elements serving the two single rooms.
