The apartment is situated on the 7th floor of one of the most quietly elegant buildings in the Roman district of EUR. The area was planned to be home to the World Fair of 1942, a project to which are dating back some representative buildings designed with elements from the Italianrationalism. Thanks to its high position, the apartment enjoys a wonderful view over this historical buildings and the surrounding landscape: an asset we wanted to enhance as much as possible during the apartment renovation. Therefore, we designed very large windows with hanging blinds directly included in the frame. With this solution, the curtains can completely desappear, allowing the view to be really amplified.
All around the tree facades of the apartment, there is a spacious terrace where greenery and pots play an important role in organizing and decorating the space.
In order to follow the clients' ideas and lifestyle demands and to improve the spacial proportions, we slightly changed the interior organization. The main change concerned the living room, that has been reduced in order to realize a fitness room and a more livable kitchen. The new heart and focal point of the entire apartment is the contemporary fireplace that divides the living from the dining area and offers a warm and comfortable place to relax. The sleeping area consists of the master bedroom and a guest room used as a bureau, both with their own bathrooms.
To reflect the clients' personality, we designedinterior spaces with a modern and metropolitan taste, where concrete is one of the key effects. A vibrating material, that has been used to cover up the background wall of the living area conveyingto the living a extraordinary urban appeal.
There are intentional vibrations and irregularities also on the wall finish, made with a hand-crafted resin. The result offers surprising light refraction that create a fascinating and elegant atmosphere.
For the fireplace we designed surfaces with a sophisticated mix of concrete, marble and metal effects. The dark and gray shades, which includes the window frames, the radiators, and some furniture details, are balanced by the warmth of the natural oak flooring. Its imperfections add a unique patina that suits perfectly with the other interior design elements. We chose elegant coatings with industrial appeal also for the bathrooms and the kitchen.
All the materials and products used were selected among the finest made in Italy producers, a guarantee of quality we were sure we could rely on.
