The project starts from the transformation of an old workshop, typically inserted in a Milanese court, into a contemporary breath apartment divided in two levels, for a total of 180 square meters. From the courtyard the full wide windows show the generous livingroom combined with the services, bathroom, laundry and two closets, expertly hidden behind an handcraft customized library that include the doors, on one side of the room and a painted no-frame door on the other.
At the first level, a large kitchen dominate the space and become the core of the project, surrounded by the master bedroom with a large cabin that walks you into the dedicated bathroom, two other bedrooms and another bathroom. The concept was characterized by the industrial nature of the building and some exixting details were kept in place, such as the brics wall and a portion of traditional esagonal tales at the entrance; other materials were choosen following the industrial influence, like the concrete floor and the steel staircase till the old fashioned wood for the floor and some walls, upstairs.
The cromatic combination between a dark Grey-Blue on the walls, on the ceiling and a full decorated paperwall(Fornasetti’s secret keys), and fabrics for upholstery, as well the use of greenery (plants with a tropical flavor) due to soften the apparently unconfortable surfaces. Furnitures were selected in a wide range of possibilities, from iconic deign masterpieces as historical as contemporary and handcraft customized pieces designed, produced and assembled in collaboration with Officina Milano Contract.
