Located in a nice residential area in Milan, the apartment is part of an elegant and well designed 1930’s
The project was focused on the specific needs and requirements of the clients, a wonderful family made of 6
people (father, mother and 4 kids from 0 to 7 years old) international globetrotters who needed an apartment
in Milan for their occasional visits in the Italian business capital.
The requirement from the beginning was to have a house that felt like home, with a mix of English elegance
and Italian design.
The intention was to open up the space, visually connecting the rooms by creating a game of sights that
could whisper but not reveal the interiors.
The entrance, conceived as an elegant and precious white treasure chest, opens up to the livingroom, on
one side, the kitchen on the other and finally to the night area.
The living room and Kitchen are visually connected and enriched by two full height custom made glazed
doors. These are thought to become discrete decorating panels while opened, or elegant doors when closed.
The living room is fully embraced by the natural light that comes from the windows facing the park in front of
the house. The atmosphere is elegant and relaxing, an important role is played by the lights that become
sculptures on the ceiling. The Tv is hidden behind a painting that moves up or down when needed.
The kitchen is fully designed and custom made, the central island is a block of Calacatta Marble, the
chandeliers once again give an interesting character to the space, by creating a twist between classic and
A long corridor leads to the private area of the house. The corridor keeps the character of a sophisticated
chest, carved in white mouldings that become wardrobe on one side and doors on the other. The corridor
terminates with an unexpected wallpaper wall that contains a secret petineuse.
The girls bedroom is a precious gem, a sort of doll house for the baby girls and their toys. A Romantic bow
window is enriched by a comfortable sofa, where little tea pots and cups become lights. The atmosphere is
surreally romantic, the memory is easily taken to the tale of Peter Pan, like if a flying kid may enter from the
window any moment.
The kids bedroom is simple and playful.
The main bedroom is sophisticated and enriched by a custom made fabric wardrobe that occupy one side of
Special attention was given to the design of the bathrooms.
The guest bathroom is decorated with dark grey resin and Calcatta Vagli marble in the full height shower and
sink. The contrast between the dark colour and the golden veins of the marble creates a unexpected and
The main bathroom, connected to the bedroom, is luminous and elegant, the white Calacatta marble
illuminates the space, a touch of romance permeates the space.
The last bathroom is geometric and characterized by a very strong design. A pattern of white and black
marble decorates the space in a unique way
