Terranuova Bracciolini - January 2018
My Architecture and Interior Design Studio has taken care of the interior design of this apartment in a nZeb building located in Terranuova Bracciolini in the new residential district of Città Giardino (Architectural Project and Direction of the building by Studio Artifex). Since this is an almost "armored" project due to the complex systems that the entire building is equipped with, I have only partially modified the interior architectural design that, in any case, has been optimized according to customer needs by halving the dead zone of the corridor sleeping area in favor of the rooms and obtaining a roomy closet-closet near the entrance that serves as a practical wardrobe.
Many of the furnishings come from the previous residence of customers (also designed by my Studio in 2013-2015) and some of them have been completely revisited, almost distorted buying a different splendor such as the chest of drawers that was BURNED finding place in the living room instead of simply being repainted.
The living area has been left entirely open-space dividing the functional areas into three parallel parts: food preparation area, dining area and relaxation area. No cumbersome furniture was used to leave the space fluid.
Two exposed brick walls have been painted black and are highlighted by lighting. They stand out in the room like decorative scenes that have nothing to do with the use of faux-effect coatings or brick effect wallpapers. Here is the wall that was made with exposed bricks that were then painted.
Rusty iron, corten steel, concrete pillars left exposed, old wood and burnt wood mix perfectly with floor resins (Mapei) and two bathrooms (Kerakoll) and the warm colors of Kerakoll Design House that are used for all the walls of all the rooms and for the doors and skirting boards of the whole apartment.
Sikkens glazes were used to paint the brick walls of the living area.
The bathrooms are completely covered in resin and in the largest bathroom, even the custom furniture made on our project is all covered in resin spatula (Kerakoll) creating a monolithic effect with the walls and blending perfectly into the context seamlessly.
Even the bedrooms follow the industrial style but with a modern and minimal touch of the rest of the apartment that is practical and functional for its inhabitants.
