The main focus of the intervention was on interior architecture and on how to fit the space to the wishes and needs of the residents, who wanted a minimal environment distinguished with objects of excellence. The existing parts were valued and contextualized. The owners already had most of the furniture and decorative objects.
Therefore, we sought to rehabilitate and enhance the apartment and, at the same time, to adapt it to the memories and to the existing furniture.The Duplex has a good solar exposure and the monochrome environment makes the space sober and comfortable.
To soften the excess brightness , the walls opposed to the windows were covered with black “Cemento Di Luna”. Everything else was white and bright. The living room was separated from the dining room with a sliding door of large dimensions. The most significant changes occurred on the second floor. The stairs to access this floor were completely redesigned, as well as the corridor that gives access to the rooms. In the coupleʼs suit, a more sophisticated environment was created, with space for a closet and another bathroom, whose walls were coated by Carrara marble and where new sanitary ceramics were placed.
