Contemporary Loft, Milan
Design work for a renovated flat in the province of Milan. The original structure was an old industrial storage building, which naturally inspired us by dictating the style of the new construction. The industrial references, mixed with classical details, the wall decorations, the iron elements, mark the spaces of the whole house. The transformation work was also followed in terms of consultancy, trying to assist the client, who is passionate and has a careful aesthetic taste. The kitchen is a large room that plays on contrasting colours and materials. Strips of dark wood combine with white veined marble, oak parquet and a skirting board designed by us ad-hoc flush with the wall. The long corridor is enhanced by a white-on-white boiserie, in relief, creating a very elegant geometric design. Marble is one of the elements we also find in the cladding of the three bathrooms, combined with natural oak wood, black metal elements and custom-made double mirrors. The wardrobes have been designed and made to measure, in almost all the rooms, optimising space without distorting the volumes. Prints and large paintings embellish the furnishings, making this “contemporary loft” even closer to the style of the New York artists’ studios of the 1970s.
