In this flat for a young couple, the restoration design was focused on the possibility of opening up, making the whole space modular and changeable based on the daily needs of the owners.
The flat is divided into two work areas. The first one is the living area, under continuous transformation thanks to the introduction of movable walls that close and open the spaces based on specific needs. The second one is the sleeping area, including one private bathroom, more intimate and separated from the rest of the flat.
The living area design was focused on the re-distribution of the spaces made possible by the use of movable walls that, for their flexibility, ensure different layouts.
The design also included a careful selection of the floor and wall finishes ensuring uniformity between the different spaces.
Special attention was paid in choosing the furniture. This comprises a selection of family antiques and some accurately chosen contemporary pieces, well known as examples of the Italian and Milan’s history of design.
