Atelierzero as Architects

Located in one of the most iconic neighborhoods of the city, this apartment is a true reflection of the style of old Milan.

Its high ceilings, molded frames for doors and windows, geometric patterned cement tiles and decorations are all distinctive elements that evoke the elegance of the era.The renovation of such an important place starts with the desire to respect and maximize the existing elements that have made the apartment so special.

The main area of intervention focuses on what used to be the kitchen and the bathroom, both recently renovated without a specific aesthetic criterion.
In this core, a easily isolatable area has been created, perfect for hosting friends and family, complete with a private bathroom and a balcony overlooking the inner courtyard. In the main area of the apartment, the walls that previously divided the space in a rigid manner have been removed to create a single environment, spacious and very bright thanks to the presence of large windows allowing natural light to flow in.

However, a textile door still allows the possibility of isolating a portion of the living area, creating a private study, while the large bedroom is accessible from both the living room and the entrance, creating a system of circular paths within the apartment.

A crucial element of the project has been the creation of perspectives that traverse the space longitudinally and transversely, offering a series of constantly changing views as one moves through the house.

The chosen materials harmoniously integrate with the existing decorative elements without overpowering them.

This is particularly evident in the choice of a continuous and neutral flooring used in the new rooms, which blends seamlessly with the concrete and terrazzo floors, highlighting their presence.

A bold and saturated color palette is used to highlight the decorative elements, creating an immersive and enveloping effect.
