Project details

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.


CEADESIGN as Manufacturers

In the heart of Milan, a stone's throw from Piazza Duomo, the ORABLU project was born: a private residence developed as a fluid environment, which suggests a welcoming perceptive continuity, guided by the choice of fine finishes and custom-made design. The diffusion of light, the discreet technology, the choice of materials and the layout of the spaces create an elegant environment that recalls the aesthetics of a boat.


The need to make the most of all the volumes has made it possible to recreate a flexible home experience, an alternation of environments that communicate with each other spontaneously, with no clear separation. The destination of spaces that are no longer conceived according to function but to the sensation they transmit changes: thus the living area communicates with the kitchen and the living room, while the bedroom fades into the bathroom, creating a zone of shared intimacy.


Just like in a ship's cabin, the furnishings, layout and materials used are entirely custom-made with extreme attention to detail. Glass and transparencies, marbles, brass finishes and wood panelling covered with a ferrous-based paint alternate seamlessly in space: a solution designed ad hoc to communicate three-dimensionality through sophisticated oil shades. Hence the inspiration for"Ora blu" as the name of the apartment, which - besides recalling a shade particularly loved by the client - suggests a space for resting at the end of the day, between sunset and dusk, for relaxing "in the harbour" of the cerulean evening light.


The architects chose CEA solutions for the bathroom and kitchen taps, able to guarantee aesthetic and functional coherence with the entire project.
