Urban Apartment by Vitale
The refurbishment project aims to completely redesign a 126 m2 urban apartment. With the premise of maximising spaces and optimising the surface area of the home and adapting them to the lifestyle of the owner, a timeless, masculine and contemporary home is designed. The lighting and a convenient layout are of particular importance.
Designed by Vitale
The rectangular layout clearly separates the day area (with the kitchen separated from the living room with a glass partition) from the night area, which consists of 2 bedrooms, an office and two bathrooms.
The main entrance becomes a tunnel covered with a smoked mirror that amplifies the space and hides a large storage cupboard. The tunnel ends in the distributor which gives access to the kitchen through a doorway lined with oak slats. The centrepiece of the kitchen is a spectacular island clad in Silestone Eternal Marquina that incorporates the hob and a dining area with Pedrali's Osaka stools.
The main spaces of the day area are visually communicated as the main nucleus of the home: the living room and kitchen are separated by a smoked glass partition. In these spaces, very comfortable indirect ambient lighting is used by means of backlit perimeter drapes that bathe the curtain (which hides several windows in the living room) next to the Marquis de Vondom illuminated flowerpots.
The design of the night area, inspired by a hotel, has a dark distributor with very scenic spot lighting that gives access to the rooms. In the master bedroom the ensuite bathroom is visually joined by the shower area with a smoked glass partition to increase the feeling of amplitude. The whole bed seems to levitate next to the tables and the backlit headboard (all designed by Vitale for the project). The main bedroom wall and shower are covered with a delicate black semi-gloss mosaic.
A house with a manly character where black and white are the undeniable stars, together with the red details provided by the prints of the versatile artist Piero Fornasetti and the Faz chairs by Vondom.
