Architects Michela Schirinzi and Sarah Marinaro of microSTUDIO designed the interiors of the home of a young musician, a two-room apartment in an old "casa di ringhiera", a traditional type of apartment building with balconies in Milan. 
In agreement with the client, a musician who loves cooking, the architects decided to preserve a number of the apartment’s original features, such as the window frames and the door separating the two rooms.

The central element in the new interior is the floor: porcelain, wood and resins evoking an old-fashioned interior, serving here as a narrative expedient. The space in the home is therefore subdivided by the physical boundaries (walls) and boundaries which are merely perceived due to the different type of flooring.Michela Schirinzi and Sarah Marinaro custom tailored every element of the interior design, making a place for everything and even designing the niches in the walls and the furniture: nothing is left to chance. In the kitchen, for example, where the counter separates the meal preparation area from the living area, holes in a rough iron panel form the score of Erik Satie’s Gymnopedie no. 1.
