The Orablu project is located right in the heart of Milan, just a few yards away from Piazza Duomo: a private home designed to be a smoothly flowing setting with a welcoming feel of perceptual continuity due to the choice of high-quality custom-designed finishing features.
The diffused lighting, unobtrusive technology, choice of materials and spatial layout help achieve this goal, creating an elegant home that looks rather like a boat.
The need to make the most of all the structural features has produced a flexible domestic experience, a combination of spaces that interact spontaneously without being clearly separated and are now used for different purposes, no longer designed according to their function but in terms of the sensations they convey. This means the living area now interacts with the kitchen and lounge, while the bedroom blends into the bathroom to create an area of shared intimacy.
Just like a ship’s cabin, the furniture, layout and selected materials are custom designed with the utmost attention to detail. The space is a seamless combination of glass and transparency, marble, glasswork and wooden panelling covered with a layer of ferrous paint: a tailored solution designed to convey three-dimensionality through sophisticated shades of petrol blue. This also provided the inspiration for the apartment’s name: “Orablu”, which, as well as referring to one of the client’s favourite colours, also suggests a space for relaxing at the end of the day between sunset and dusk, basking cosily in the deep-blue evening light.
