Apartment renovation for a five person family.
The areas of the house are hierarchically ordered between the cozy space and meeting zone.
The rooms are connected in a classical way: an enfilade multiplies the inner space, connecting it with the outer one.
The house is located on the top floor of a corner building. The L shaped layout allows to divide the whole space in two parts with different qualities: the private and the public one. The first one includes the bedrooms and the bathrooms, the second meet together the spaces where you can meet and welcome guests. The junction between the two parts is made by the kitchen, wich is both private and public. This space is in the apartment corner, in a ideally central position. A sliding panel allows you to quietly separe the two areas.
A linear terrace lays on the West side of the apartment. The project uses this element to multiply interior space. The wall and the windows facing the terrace are emphasized to get a succession of rooms. The luminous passage connects the living areas creating an enfilade, as used to be in the ancient Italian villas: in a galance it is possible to have a look at the kitchen, the entrnce, the dining room and the living room.
Some large, full-height panels allow the closure of each room to allow different uses.
The whole house is charaterized by some big white volumes. In this boxed forniture there are both different shelves in wich order the objects of the family but also technical spaces such as storage or implants
The living room is defined by a large free-standing white prism. The furniture contains several compartments and, interacting with a large tilting door, allows to close the room to the entrance.
Three frames-like holes in this furniture let natural light coming inside the room and creates a connection with what's happening in the house.
The last part of the enfilade is the lounge area: from here you can see the succession of interior spaces and their ideal continuity with the outside ones.
