The transformation of a small modern apartment in Brera, Milan

We perceive a spirit of transition, involving everything and everyone, structures, spaces and people, up to the small two-room apartment rented on the first floor, a living room and a bedroom, separated until now by the furnishing system which had accompanied its recent life: open shelves in dark wood and red panels, low sofas gathered around stepped landings, all unified by the carpet, also red. In the bedroom, above the bed, a wardrobe bridge to create an alcove.

His latest transformation, however, sought the light in every way; not the effect of masses, not the effect of color blocking, just light. Delicate tones of color on the walls and in the new oak parquet, and the element separating the living and sleeping areas which becomes the heart of the design strategy: a glass wall with a metal frame made up of two sliding panels on the whole height, bringing the light from the high bedroom window also to the living room.

The articulation of the two rooms is flanked by a longitudinal slab of service spaces, which aligns a dressing room, a minimalist and functional kitchen, and the bathroom which opens almost by surprise onto the sleeping area, revealing large figurative foliage. of a wallpaper. The deck wardrobe framing the bed has become an integral part of the wall surface thanks to a paneling intervention, making the sleeping area uniform in front of the light.
