Minori, one of the small gems set in the heart of the Amalfi Coast, recognized by Unesco as a heritage of humanity. The house is in the historical center, very close to the beach, at the second floor of a lovelly building, made with any architectural project but only following the needs of those who lived it in the years, as often happens on the Coast.


Only 33 sq mts and a family, which in particular occasions may need also 8 beds.


With such small spaces available and such ambitious requests, the hints could come only from the nautical world so here it comes the idea of the “boath”.


So this small house has been converted into a “wide and confortable boath” where is possible to have on board sons and friends.


As you enter there is a wide dinette with a full optional Kitchenette: double sink, induction cooktop, extractor hood, fridge, and a small peninsula for breakfast; following there is a built in sofa with usefull storage space underneath and a bouble sofa bed next to it.


A small mezzanine, with the side wall slightly leaning just as a boath, covers part of the dinette, and hosts two more beds, this space is reachable thanks to the staircase made of drawers.


On the right of the entrance door, there is a high cabinet that continues towards the corridor with sinuous lines to shape the paths and make advantage of the exisitng spaces.


The first part of this cabinet is higher than it get lower underneath the window and it contains the washing machine, while in the corridor are used as shoe-cabinets.


Everything lies on the “sea waves”, the paving, designed ad hoc from the Studio Ricciardi and hand painted from “MA.VI Ceramiche”, with blue waves breaking underneath the built-in cabinets forming the shoreline foam made of white brushstrokes.


In the corridor, the first toilet is literally built-in, from the sea waves paving stands a hand made and painted terracotta lighthouse, seeing it you really feel into a boath.    


A circular shower, a WC, a top mounted sink placed on a lacquered lavic stone countertop shaped into the existing semicircular spot of the wall, on top of it a cabinet with a mirror and integrated light system. A very small toilet but with all comforts.    


Immediately after there is the master bedroom door, on the right the sinuous lines of the built in cabinets become now drawers and than at the end of the room a shaped wardrobe.


On the left, a timber wall containing a sliding door, separates the bathroom form the master room.


On the side of the bed head, designed to contain the pillows, there are two wall mounted “bed-side tables” designed ad hoc from the Studio, they contain a plug, an integrated flexible reading light and can be reversed to contain a book, a pair of glasses, a phone/tablet etc…    


The second bathroom ha salso a terracotta lighthouse, a WC, Bidet, sink and back-lit mirror cabinet and of course the second circular shower cladded with rectangular blue tiles.


An interesting detail  is the stainless steel sphiral shaped shower curtain  track with a stainless steel guide also on the floor.


Also the master bedroom has a mezzanine with two more beds, reachable with a ladder hanged in an apposit recessed spot.
