The accommodations of small size, different from traditional hotels, are growing in the world but also in Italy and in Milan. In this trend the Arch Nicola Gisonda was chosen for a restoration project of a Milanese apartment block of the early twentieth century.


The build, inserted in a residential area in Via G.B. Tiepolo 38, is independent and has three floors. The architectural project was developed through a radical renovation that transformed a residential palace in a guest house with six bedrooms, a living area equipped with a kitchen and a dehor with a private garden. The entire project, through the language of architecture and interior design, wants to express an idea of ​​luxury accommodation but closer to the concept of "residence" where the spaces meet the needs of guests.


The issue of the project is based on the choice of colours and materials, deliberately inserted in a game of contrasts but at the same time in a continuity mood. An example is the velvet, the protagonist in the rooms that is declined in a colour palette.


Every room, in fact, is characterized by a colour and the nuance selected change from pastel colours like pink and powder pink to the more defined as blue and purple until arriving to colours warmer and enveloping like rust and ruby. Gray and black are present in different nuance with different materials like the wood of wardrobe and doors or duffles and link each colour.



Most of the furniture are custom designed for the structure by the Arch. Nicola Gisonda. Some of them are declined specifically for the project and present in Mentemano’ s collection or LANDO’ s collection.


Each element has been designed following a well-defined course such as the different geometric designs, designed and manufactured specifically for the project and present in the boisserie tissue, tops of tables and desk console.


The boisserie has a geometric design that, with a new stylized proposal, moves surfaces playing with titanium-coloured background and creating a dynamic contrast of light / dark.


The little tables have a geometric design, too; in this case, however, it is coloured, in contrast with the colour of the support surface and printed on a lacquered wooden surface.


The brass effect plays with colours; we can find it in small discrete elements like lights, the legs of some furnishings and the details of the bathroom.


In the room there is an important installation adopted for separating the bedroom area from the bathroom. In order to provide additional depth, giving continuity to the space and expand them visually, a crystal gray smoke filter wall has been inserted. With its partial glazing it gives the right privacy and allows you to read from the bedroom area the Carrara marble presents in the bathroom, additional material element that is linked to the colors gray and black.


White, black and gray are in the living area, linked  together to the oak wood floor and the gray of the stone staircase. Another color is blue, deliberately inserted for creating a black shading. This living area, a disused site in the past, becomes alive and overlooking  the garden with a front of windows. With this solution it’s possible to get in touch the living area with the garden, ideally allowing the garden to enter in the structure and creating a strong continuity between the spaces. The outdoor area becomes an extension of the living area and turns, opening to the garden, depending on the seasons. Further protagonist of the living area is the central table that, with its function, wants to be a meeting place for guests; this emphasizes the convivial atmosphere of the guest house.


The attention to detail accompanies the whole project and it is located in the furnishings such as the seams of pouf never casual, but also in the stone cladding of the bathroom and in the poses of the staircase where there are dedicated designs. Particular care also to the lighting; there are LED lighting inserted in the countertop. To complete the lighting project some ANTONANGELI lamps, declined specifically for the structure with brass and opaque black effect.


Colours, shapes and lines are contemporary and giving the structure its own identity; spaces have a prestigious and elegant allure, highlighted by the selection of materials and trim, but at the same time a friendly character thanks to the colour choices.


The solutions adopted in the project are designed to obtain functional spaces complete with all comfort; spaces that do guest feel at home and do experience a pleasant atmosphere.


This project gives life to a Milanese palace of the early twentieth century, situated in a neighborhood built following the design of English village; not only a simple accommodation but a luxury guest house.


The designer recreates a real familiar world, a lively place where live comfort and design.
