Renovation, conversion and extension of a historical building in Milan, close to Via Sarpi
The building has been converted into a residence.
It consists of 3 floors, a basement, a flat roof and a courtyard.
THE IDEA_ Concoction comes from the verb to concoct and in order to gain the perfect concoction you need the correct ingredients and the right measurements. That is exactly what we had in mind when we created this Apartment-hotel.
The idea was to create a facility made of six small apartments both appealing and functional to a wide range of different, heterogeneous people.
Humusstudio, in charge of the whole project, soon realized that the best possible way to achieve this degree of diversity was to embroil other architecture offices with different backgrounds and professional paths.
We spotted six units with similar dimensions and characteristics, hereafter four young groups of architects were asked to design the given unit as though it was to be their own pied-à-tere in Milan.
Humusstudio, Tomo Architects, 02ARCH. Giovanni Cagnato e April Studio created a space adaptive to different tastes and needs, in which all of the apartments are, while independent, bound to a certain common attention to details as well as the same cost of construction.
