The Atelierzero design studio renovates a spacious flat, located inside a residential tower that is a symbol of Milan’s post-war rebirth.
In addition to its external beauty, the tower is renowned for its innovative technical solutions and is an icon of modern architecture in the city, representing a landmark in the urban landscape.
The internal renovation focused on maintaining the load-bearing structure, transforming the entire space into an ideal canvas on which to develop the project.
A key element that has been retained is a large two-tone marble circle, used as flooring in the living area, which represents both a distinctive material and a significant symbolic form.
Freed from the marble flooring that framed it, this circle becomes the central fulcrum around which the interior layout develops, becoming the physical and ideal centre of the house.
The design avoided the traditional division of space through walls and doors, preferring instead to identify transversal and longitudinal perspective axes capable of maximising views towards the city.
In a reverse operation, the space not occupied by these visual axes has been organised into a series of volumes, hierarchised according to their function through the use of colours and materials.
These volumes include two black elements as a scenic backdrop, two neutral elements in the centre and a mirror element that reflects the surrounding space, creating interesting perspective effects.
The large kitchen island can be likened to an independent material volume.
The choice of colours, materials and finishes was designed in a neutral way to emphasise the existing elements, which inspired the use of additional marble elements to define the rooms, such as the island, guest sink, bathtub, washbasins and headboard.
To complete the project, there are two independent studios, complete with walk-in wardrobe and private bathroom, one of which is equipped with a kitchen.
