Essential architectural element of this apartment located in the historic district of Pigneto in Rome is the use of the white, understood as a concept of pure intimacy and hospitality. This is the starting point in designing a contemporary space in a historic palace, mediating between the story and the ” today”. The distribution of the interior spaces has therefore emphasized the backbone of the building without decontextualize the modern approach. The open space thus obtained has created a spatial continuity and a maximum exploitation of the environments in which the element of distributive tension of the living room becomes an equipped multi-function wall, designed to accommodate on one side the bio-fireplace and the TV, on the other side to hide the kitchen cupboards. Predominant is the use of the white color, warmed by architectural elements in dove gray and antique oak parquet. White wooden beams, wall satin light cuts and minimalist furnishings create an ethereal atmosphere. The bathroom has a longitudinal use of the space and a visual continuity accentuated by the use of the wood effect stoneware on the floor combined with a cement texture played on the same tones on the walls.


Elemento essenziale dell’architettura di questo appartamento situato nello storico quartiere del Pigneto a Roma è l’uso del bianco, inteso come concetto di pura intimità e accoglienza. Questo il punto di partenza nel progettare uno spazio contemporaneo all’interno di un involucro antico, mediando tra la storia e l’”oggi”. La distribuzione degli spazi interni ha pertanto enfatizzato l’ossatura portante dell’edificio senza decontestualizzare il moderno. L’open space così ottenuto ha creato una continuità spaziale e di massima fruizione degli ambienti in cui l’elemento di tensione distributiva del living diventa una parete attrezzata multifunzione, disegnata per alloggiare da un lato il bio-camino e la tv, dall’altro per nascondere i pensili della cucina. Predominante è l’uso del colore bianco, scaldato a tratti da elementi architettonici in tortora e dal parquet in rovere antichizzato. Travi in legno bianche, tagli di luce raso parete e arredi minimalisti contribuiscono a creare un ambiente etereo. Il bagno ha una fruizione longitudinale dello spazio e una continuità visiva accentuata dall’uso del gres effetto legno a pavimento abbinato ad una texture cementizia giocata sugli stessi toni a parete.
