In today’s post, I take you to “visit” a beautiful Milanese apartment: the renovation project was curated by Atelier Zero, a young Milanese architecture studio.
The apartment created by Atelier Zero is the result of the union of two adjacent residential units. What characterizes this project is the color, a slate blue that acts as a common thread between the various rooms, and the shape of the arch and semi-arch that recurs in different environments.
The existing living / dining area and bathroom were kept unchanged in the project. The new kitchen instead becomes the focal point of the house, the real convivial space around which the other rooms have been organized.
The original arch between the kitchen and the dining room was maintained and was the inspiration from which the designers started to model the shape of the corridor that leads into the sleeping area. The corridor was organized with wardrobes and flush doors that create a smooth and continuous surface, made even more evident by the blue color with which the entire corridor was painted. The same shade of blue was used on the kitchen cabinets, giving again that sense of continuity between kitchen and corridor.
Another interesting thing in this project is the use of floor coverings. The floors were in fact used to define the different spaces: the dining room, living room, study and bedrooms are identified by the herringbone parquet, the connective spaces by a neutral-colored resin and the thresholds by travertine marble. The bathrooms, on the other hand, are characterized by the use of geometric cement tiles and the presence of bright and vibrant colors.
