The apartment for a small (3-member) family in the city of Milan takes its inspiration from a very cozy and informal ambience of a moderate and classical Italian style of living. The apartment consists of a living-cum-dining hall, a master bedroom, a child's bedroom, a guest room in addition to a huge kitchen and breakfast/luncheon area.
The whole color scheme as well as the general idea of the interior spaces was deliberately kept very subtle, keeping in mind the lifestyle and tastes of the family. The light color scheme gives the inhabitants a strong sense of well being and elegence, while the parquet flooring with a perticular brownish tinch prevents the overall space from becoming too cold in appearance. A combination of Italian (Satvario) marble with the parquet flooring in the corridor and the lobby adds to the overall value of the connecting spaces instead of leaving them as secondary.
High lintel of doors & windows, Satvario table and counter-tops, thematic light fixtures and chandelliers, and a fusion of classical and minimalistic style for the furniture and fixtures, all was very carefully thought of and worked in relation to the color and texture scheme of the house.
The apartment, already completed in March 2010, now is undergoing further refurbishment and restructuring due to the additon of an identical neighboring unit so as to double up in area. The newly added spaces, and specially the terraces are being worked out as an extended philosophy of the unit.
