Rachele Biancalani Studio - Architecture & Design as Interior Design, Lighting Design and Home Shopping

The Architecture and Interior Design Studio by Rachele Biancalani Architect iunior has taken care of the interior design of this apartment in then Zeb building located in Terranuova Bracciolini. Since this is an almost "armored" project due to the complex systems that the entire building is equipped with, the Designer has been able to modify only a minimal part the architectural design of the interiors that, in any case, has been optimized according to customer needs. 


Many of the furnishings come from the previous house of the Clients (also designed by Rachele Biancalani several times from 2013-2015) and some of them have been completely revisited, almost distorted acquiring a different splendor such as the chest of the old room that is BURNED finding a place in the living instead of being simply repainted. The burns give the wood a black color and the previous varnishes are turned from sugar paper to petroleum green, giving enchanting shaded effects to the old chest of drawers.


The living area has been left entirely open-space dividing the functional areas into three parallel parts: food preparation area, dining area and relaxation area. Purposely no bulky furniture was used in the rooms to leave the space fluid.


The two walls in real exposed brick have been painted black and are highlighted by the lighting; in this way they stand out in the room like decorative scenes that have nothing to do with the use of coverings or brick effect wallpaper.


Rusty iron, corten steel, concrete pillars left exposed, old wood and burnt wood mix perfectly with floor resins (Mapei) and two bathrooms (Kerakoll) and the warm colors of Kerakoll Design that have been used for all the walls of all the rooms and for the doors and skirting boards of the whole apartment.


Sikkens glazes were used to paint the brick walls of the living area.


The bathrooms are completely covered in resin and in the larger bathroom also the custom furniture made on our project is all covered in resin spatula (Wallcrete of Kerakoll, color WR08) creating a monolithic effect with the walls and blending perfectly into the context without solution continuity. This piece of furniture has the peculiarity of being super capacious but of disappearing, merging with the walls in a bathroom with a strong character thanks to the dark color used without fear.

In the master bedroom has a very important scenic effect the glass fifth that separates the wall of the shower from the room itself, this to ensure that entering the master bedroom the "open space" effect does not perceive the spatial limits of a bathroom very close at the entrance door of the room. The headboard of the bed comes from the old house of the landlords and it too had been built at the time on a project by Rachele Biancalani.


Even the bedrooms follow the industrial style but with a modern and minimal touch of the rest of the apartment that is practical and functional for its inhabitants. The two twin wardrobes in the girl's bedroom were "rigged" with pink polka dots to liven them up, a fun and decisive idea.


In the corridor of the sleeping area and in the master bedroom the light cuts recreated with the LED strips are Brooklin profiles by Panzeri embedded in the false ceiling or between the wall and the reinforced concrete pillar left exposed.
