Interior renovation project of a traditional Milanese bourgeois apartment, characterized by wide surfaces, high ceilings, plaster corniches and a classical central corridor distribution.
We approached the project by choosing the repetition of elements as key tool to emphasize the linear sequence of openings and passing-through spaces.
Deep and slender passages shape continuous perspectives through the enfilade of rooms. What once used to be the serving circulation space is now shrinked into a technical spine crossing the whole apartment, it sometimes opens up revealing hidden spaces or technical installations, everyday equipments or allowing passages.
The new solid backbone empowers the sequence of rooms with fluidity of space and non hierarchic flows.
Furnitures are mainly customized in order to answer back to specific needs of each space; materials and vintage 30’s pieces blend with contemporary items in a traditional but still not nostalgic atmosphere.
