If you ask anyone in Milan to recommend a Chinese restaurant, you can be sure that they will point you in the direction of via Paolo Sarpi.

This street, in the centre of city, is known to many as Milan’s Chinatown on account of the high number of Chinese-run shops. In recent years it has been gentrified and pedestrianised and has become an important and ethnically-diverse area of the city, with the opening of multiple street-food outlets to satisfy all kinds of palates.

The design of this apartment presented a challenge in terms of the complexity of the stylistic choices, colour palette and geometry, directed towards transforming a traditional, three-roomed apartment into a modern and highly-personal setting.

Design and project managements by architect Nadia Orecchio and Giovanna Siliprandi

_________________________________________

Se chiedi di un negozio cinese a un milanese, puoi star certo che questi ti indirizzerà verso Paolo Sarpi. La via, in pieno centro meneghino, è infatti conosciuta da molti come la Chinatown di Milano per via dell’alto numero di botteghe cinesi. Negli ultimi anni è stata rinnovata, resa pedonale, ed è diventata un quartiere importante ed etnicamente connotato della città, con l’apertura di diversi street food in grado di soddisfare ogni tipo di palato.

Occuparsi di questo appartamento è stata una sfida, per complessità di scelte stilistiche, accostamenti cromatici, geometrici e per l’obiettivo di trasformare un taglio tradizionale di trilocale in un ambiente moderno e molto personalizzato.

Progetto dell'arch. Nadia Orecchio, interior design di Giovanna Siliprandi.
