A successful coexistence of functionality, colour and charm for a modern and high-tech abode, customized in all its areas.
If you want to admire the historical and architectural evolution of Milan, just look out from the two terraces of this flat.
The first one looks directly at the secular temple of world football, San Siro, with its imposing spiral tiers, limber and robust like arms ready to embrace the sky. The second terrace, on the other hand, frames a breath-taking view of the skyline, which changes dramatically and is outlined by recently-built skyscrapers, now an established symbol of the urban transformation of the city.
In this fascinating context, the project signed by architect Paola Sposari – the CEO of Sposari Home – comes to life, thanks to a concept able to prune reality from unnecessary stylistic frills. The premises – about 300 sqm completely renovated – immediately offer a wonderful glance.
As soon as you walk through the entrance, marked by bookcases covered in cement tiles, with coves in lacquered-metallized bronze, the impact created by the movement of the different heights is immediate.
The central lowering separates the areas of the large living room, with a portion intended for the sitting room, and another designed for the dining area, dominated by a remarkable table. The “cap” placed above the living room has been embellished with very particular decorations: circular holes, designed to give suggestive light effects to point out the illuminated planets.
The large portals in the rooms develop as an integral part of the wainscoting and harmoniously match the bookcases; furnishings that define large sections of the most convivial part of the house.
And that’s exactly a portal – Velaria by Rimadesio with lead frame, smoked Stopsol glass and embellished with a Dekton top – that protects the kitchen designed as an island.
We move to the sleeping area consisting of three bedrooms – one for the guests –, three bathrooms and the study, so it is necessary to walk through a short and elegant corridor surrounded by decorative wainscoting in lacquered-metallic bronze, closed by a spatula wall in gold and bronze with an evident Klimtian reference, able of giving importance and brightness to the backdrop.
The master sleeping area is dominated by several bookcases too, less deep but able to hide the walk-in wardrobes. Therefore, this room boasts a stained oak parquet with a talc-ash effect. A warmer and more welcoming solution than the stoneware laid in the living room, which also boasts a Flou bed with matching bedside tables.
The common thread of the whole project is therefore represented by the game of volumes and the chromatic contrasts. A real alternation of emotions, divided into functional areas, yet distinguished by a continuous reference to different styles. Details that tell, reveal and introduce the wonder of a dream called home.
