From the architect: The level’s hight and the large bow window provide a nice view and let much natural light get in. The flat’s layout has been completely changed: the main concept was to join, as much as possible, the living spaces in a single large area, separated from the sleeping zone by the entrance; all bathrooms are in the central area.
The client wished to be able to cook while watching and talking to his guests. For this reason, the kitchen is separated from the living room by a monolithic wooden element that hides the gas stove and can be opened, allowing communication between spaces. With same concept and same proportions, the library can be opened, revealing the TV system inside.Great classics of international design are mixed with contemporary pieces, designed by young European designers.
