VILLA OLIVA

VILLA OLIVA

A house with a garden in the heart of Milan, a new Italian beginning for a young cosmopolitan family. The customers’ indications are few, but very clear: a livable, functional and contemporary house, with a neutral palette and color accents that liven up the rooms, maintaining a strong relationship with the garden and with particular attention to the arrangement of the works of art. ‘art. From this moment on we were given complete trust and great creative freedom, allowing us to create a project that gave us great satisfaction. The apartment is spread over two floors, both overlooking the private garden; the living area and the main bedrooms are located on the first floor, while the guest area, the gym and the cinema room/games area are located on the ground floor. On both floors we designed almost all of the furnishings and doors, which we then had made by our trusted craftsmen, in order to have maximum control over materials and finishes. The general palette is developed on the warm tones of oak and Navona travertine, of which an entire block was selected and purchased, in order to maintain the same nuances on the various furnishings in the different rooms of the house. The environments in which we worked most on color are the two very lively powder rooms, the one in shades of blue and orange on the first floor and in shades of ocher and light blue on the ground floor, treating them like small, very colorful boxes with a surprise effect. Overall it was a much loved project, both by us and by the clients, which gave us the opportunity to work in the constant search for balance between dry and rigorous geometries and sudden accents of colors and textures, to give life to a home livable and welcoming, but original and unconventional like the family that lives there.

LAKE FRONT VILLA

LAKE FRONT VILLA

Nomade Architettura had the opportunity to lead the complete reimagining of the magnificent Villa Sassella, situated in an enchanting location on the shores of the lake in the picturesque village of Lenno. The entire residence underwent a comprehensive renovation, where every detail was meticulously attended to, both in rethinking the layout of the spaces and in selecting the most refined finishes. In close collaboration with the clients, the decision was made to transform the upper floor of the villa into the main living area. Here, a spacious living area was created, incorporating the living room, dining room, and kitchen, thus maximizing the extraordinary panoramic view of the lake. For this environment, a sober and elegant design was chosen, characterized by clean lines and precious materials, harmoniously blending with decorative elements from the past such as ceiling and wall moldings, creating a suggestive blend of tradition and modernity. The lower floor of the villa was dedicated to the sleeping area, where a cozy vestibule, adorned with an original stone floor and a striking custom-made wrought iron door, introduces to the three refined bedrooms, each with its own unique personality and charm. Two of them, spacious and bright, were allocated to the master bedrooms, while the third, more intimate and playful, was designed as a veritable playground for the little ones. On this floor, there are also two other bathrooms of the highest standard, where refined design and attention to detail blend harmoniously to create environments of great charm and comfort, enhanced by stylistic choices in harmony, declined on different materials and distinctive elements of great aesthetic value.

BENDING SPOONS

BENDING SPOONS

Nomade Architettura designed the brand-new headquarters for leading European tech company Bending Spoons. The workspace is found in the heart of Milan, a few steps from Corso Como and
Garibaldi Metro station. The final design is the result of the incredibly open dialogue and great collaboration between the company and the architectural firm, and embodies the extreme care the company has for its Spooners, who were the focal element around which all aesthetic and functional choices were made. The workspace is spread over three floors, of approximately 1,000 square meters each. The first and second floors are purely dedicated to workstations, with open spaces, meeting rooms, and individual focus rooms. On these floors, there are also relaxation areas and lactation rooms. The third floor is a multifunctional space, dedicated to the canteen, the game area, and the bar.
The fit-out was guided by the need to include a large number of meeting rooms and individual workspaces in an environment initially conceived as an open space-an endeavor that created design challenges and opportunities. For the layout, it was decided to utilize the periphery of the area-surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows-for open-space activities, and for group work with the addition of silent rooms. The central part of the floor plan is instead dedicated to more enclosed and private spaces, to accommodate individual work. As the new HQ represents an evolution of the previous one (located just a few meters away, on Corso Como), it retains many of the same aesthetic values that resonate with Spooners: attention to nature and lines, and a love of Nordic design (the co-founders started the company in Denmark in 2013). Accordingly, the offices are characterized by the extensive use of wood, applied in all dimensions, and by the significant green accents of plants woven throughout, interrupting the precision of the space by covering ceilings, walls, and corners. Curved lines feature prominently in the space, and are found both in the layout to emphasize the fluidity of movement and on the interior facades to echo the sinuosity of the Bending Spoons logo. The pattern of dots on the interior walls of the first and second floors forms the Bending Spoons logo-visually connecting the two floors and serving as a metaphor for the individual Spooners who together create a larger design. While the external designs of meeting and focus rooms are all uniform with the same materials and sign style, the opposite is found within these spaces. The intention was to create a variety of environments that could cater to the different desires and habits of Spooners, so that each individual could find their own space-with flexibility and, above all, functionality as the highest priorities. Thus, themed rooms were designed, mirroring various environments, such as Water, Electric City, Metal, and Cloud. These are spaces with distinct, immersive, and stimulating qualities, catering to a wide range of concentration needs. This concept was also applied to the meeting rooms, with some being more soothing and adorned simply with greenery, while others are distinguished by wallpaper that uniquely and dynamically represents natural elements or landscapes. The third floor is a departure from the other levels, designed for leisure, play, and live events. The canteen is located here, featuring a spacious, carefully equipped, and functional kitchen, as well as a game area and bar. The space dedicated to tables and chairs is also used as an auditorium for presentations and discussions among Spooners. Natural elements are incorporated here as well, with small trees placed on a sinuous wooden bench that traces the perimeter of the space. On the same floor, there’s an activity room-a multipurpose space with a grand piano. The desks and meeting room tables, custom-designed according to the ergonomic and technological standards of the company, also deserve a mention. The technology within the tables is concealed yet remains fully accessible, enhancing the functionality of work tools like surface- integrated phone chargers. This seamless integration ensures optimal utility while meticulously adhering to the project’s design aesthetic.
An exciting, enjoyable, and truly one-of-a-kind project, this office was designed to be a tangible response to the needs of a company that stands out not only for its innovation, but also for its deep commitment to its people. Good luck, Spooners!

We had the pleasure of intervening in the interior design of a chalet owned by a young couple. The house is on three levels, the semi-basement floor houses a large cinema room with bar corner, here a gym area with sauna has also been created; a staircase leads to the immediately upper floor where, in large living room are articulated the kitchen with dining area and reading area with stone fireplace; continuing along the staircase is the sleeping area, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The house is warm and welcoming and speaks a taste that dialogues between contemporary and mountainous. Wood is the protagonist, but without overdoing it, covering some walls while leaving freshness to other corners that are instead treated in lime. The furniture was designed and studied specifically to make the most of the space, connote the rooms and integrate into the space by dialoguing with the parquet floor, creating an enveloping material and color continuity. Light plays an important role in the home, deliberately discreet, apt to create corners, areas illuminated and emphasized by adjustable spotlights and integrated LEDs, which light up and give life to the rooms. The tones are natural, warm, with contrasting black accents that make the chalet contemporary. The bathrooms are clad in Luserna stone casing, masterfully treated and carved by local craftsmen. A home that beautifully reflects the combination of intent and taste of the clients and Nomade!

HOUSE AGRATE

HOUSE AGRATE

Casa Agrate is a family home, not renovated or modified for decades, which the clients, a young couple with their two children, have decided to transform and make more
modern and flexible. The clients asked us for a comfortable home, with modern finishes and materials and simple geometries; to these general guidelines we have tried to add more pop and daring accents in the decor choices, above all with the use of custom-made wallpaper and furnishings, and paying particular attention
o the choice of lamps and furnishing accessories. The house opens onto a wall completely covered in Fornasetti’s “Key secret” wallpaper in shades of blue, which hides the 2 pocket doors of the guest bathroom and utility room, and which continues into the living area; thus a large box is created, in which the corner has been completed
with custom-made furniture in painted metal and covered panels, designed by us and Ccustom made. The small guest bath deserves a separate mention: completely hidden by the folding door flush with the wall, it is a small box entirely in shades of blue that opens onto the entrance and is completed by the large custom-made mirror that expands the space. To the right of the entrance is the living area, which houses the seating area and the dining area, aligned with the window; the long wall opposite the entrance has been fully equipped to our design and divided into 3 areas: a TV area in the seating area, the fireplace in the center and a reading area on the left, next to the fireplace corner and the window overlooking the garden. In the master bedroom we worked on a palette of pinks and grays, juxtaposing grayscale Cole & Son ‘Palm Jungle’ wallpaper with a blush ceiling, and leaving all furnishings and accents in white tones.

APARTMENT SC

Appartamento SC - Nomade Architettura

APARTMENT SC

A conservation project in one of the most beautiful and lively areas of the city, inside a building designed by the architect Caccia Dominioni. The project marks our third collaboration with the client, Jacopo Canclini of JMC spa, real estate developer and interior designer enthusiast, who has chosen to entrust us with the renovation of his future home. Not being able to intervene on the layout, nor on the floors, the greatest effort was to manage the complete renovation of the systems and the renovation of the bathrooms, impacting as little as possible on the existing one, maintaining and restoring the wooden floors and the original doors. The apartment opens onto a large entrance around which the master suite, the living area and the service area are distributed. From the entrance you then enter the long corridor onto which two other bedrooms and the children’s bathroom overlook. The eclectic style of the project comes from the synergy with the customer, with whom we collaborated closely in the different phases of the construction site, defining all the choices together, from plant solutions to finishes, from custom-made furnishings to textiles.

CASAMAR

There is a legend that advises against designing a friend’s house. Well, we’ve never been happier to debunk this myth. The house in question is owned by an Italian-Moroccan couple of great friends of Selina, the owners of Casa Amar, which deals with the import of well-made Moroccan carpets, with a particular eye to the sustainability of their production. The couple, fond of their Milanese home, decided it was time for a restyling. The layout has remained almost unchanged, but what we have particularly focused on are the lights, the finishing materials and the furnishings. Starting with the living area, enriched by a mural with deliberately bright colors and a Moroccan appeal, which seems to want to draw a sun that illuminates the room and the design of a furniture that creates a sort of booth-bookcase with respect to the entrance. The living area has been enriched with gold-colored wall lamps and the chandelier that dominates the dining table. The corridor leading to the sleeping area was deliberately poped-up with the use of wallpaper that covers part of the walls and ceiling, creating a decidedly enveloping effect with a taste of magic. The corridor opensto the master bedroom, with soft colors and delicate North African accents and the children’s room, enriched by a beautiful watercolor effect wallpaper and a large furniture in Vienna straw and wood that contains both clothes and toys. some children. A colorful and enveloping house, just like the family that lives in it!

Casa Lazit - Nomade Architettura

CASALAZIT

People grow up, families are expanding and for us architects it is really a pleasure to be able to follow their evolution. Casa Lazit is the new home of a beautiful family for which we had already followed the renovation of the previous apartment (viale Abruzzi apartment). The family has expanded and needs have changed and with them the tastes and the desire to create a house with a new and fresh character. The apartment, very large of 200 square meters, was designed in an eclectic style, a basically neutral palette on the walls, which however was characterized by colorful accents given by the furnishings and accessories. The eclectic style is perfect for homes that want to grow and change without distorting themselves, gradually composing accessories and accents that renew their varied and sometimes eccentric character. The heart of the house is undoubtedly the living area, a large space overlooking a beautiful garden, consisting of the sofa area and the dining table, connected by a large white iron window overlooking the kitchen. The kitchen, with a central island, is colored in powder blue and warm white, with the central island to which an oak table is attached. The character of this environment is further emphasized by the Mipa colored terrazzo material used as a backsplash for the worktop. It was decided to leave a concrete column in the living area exposed, on this wall were placed a sideboard with a Scandinavian taste and a composition of paintings with a multicolored palette that connote the space with bright accents. The sleeping area is organized with a master bedroom containing the bedroom, a large walk-in closet and the “lei” bathroom. The tones used in the room are more traditional, with a silky wallpaper. The bathroom is played in shades of antique pink and forest green, with gold accents. In the sleeping area there is also the child’s bedroom, characterized by tropical-themed wallpaper and the “he” bathroom, in grit-effect stoneware with black and wood accents. A blue telescope-effect corridor leads to the service area of the house, with a guest bathroom, deliberately treated in an elegant and simple way, the laundry area and his study. An apartment that we really liked to design and follow, for the open plan and the great possibilities that ensued and for the great participation of the customers. A curiosity, she is Lucia, the influencer lucia_lazit!

HOUSE G

HOUSE G

One of those projects in which we were able to express our love for details, materials and refined solutions. Located in one of the most beautiful residential areas of Milan, the apartment has been completely renovated, both in terms of internal distribution and taste. We opted for an intervention that would enhance and dialogue with the period details of the building from the early twentieth century, through a game of references and citations that pay homage to historical figures of Italian and Milanese design. The result is an elegant and delicate project, with extremely accurate details. The apartment opens onto a small entrance illuminated by the custom-designed iron and glass door, which leads to the study and which dialogues with the coat closet covered in Nuvolette wallpaper by Fornasetti. The floor is a Venetian-style seminato by Fantini Mosaici, with a shaded design that
changes from an intense red perimeter to a warm white in the center, in line with the large glass chandelier by Vistosi. The entrance leads to the corridor that leads to the bedrooms and bathrooms, and then opens onto the large living area. In the great room the stuccos and frames meet historical protagonists of design, from the mirror by Gio Ponti hanging over the late 19th century marble fireplace, to the lamps by Sarfatti aligned with the large molded windows; all the result of careful research and selection carried out in constant dialogue with the client. The kitchen is the last room and concludes the project, the pair of iron and glass doors and the seminato floor by Fantini Mosaici return, but this time with Candoglia marble, the same as in the Milan Cathedral; the wall units by Valcucine in clear etched glass match the top and
shelves in gold Calacatta marble. The bathrooms deserve a separate chapter: the master one, connected directly to the bedroom, has floors and walls in Salvatori’s Carrara marble, in Raw and Honed finishes; the second bathroom, the children’s one, is covered in Zellige tiles by MosaicFactory, combined with the
blue grit floor. Everything in this project tells of our passion for design, for materials and their combinations, for hidden details and sudden accents, for dialogue, comparison and constant learning that our profession gives us every time.

NOMADE ARCHITETTURA OFFICE – MILAN

NOMADE ARCHITETTURA OFFICE – MILAN

We design spaces, we design emotions, and we believe that a beautiful environment, which conveys beautiful energy improves the quality of life of those who live in it. We changed studios; there was no longer enough space in the previous one to contain us and our creativity, so after a rather quick search, we found the perfect space for us. A loft (like all our previous studios), in the heart of the Navigli area, a very large, bright room, perfect for us. A beautiful, circular window overlooks a small private courtyard and allows us to enjoy the view of the plants that enhance it. The stained-glass window brings to mind the New York lofts we love so much. In front of this we created a relaxation area, with sofas and armchairs and especially many plants. In the center of the space we designed a bright and very large iron and glass meeting room, which becomes a kind of beacon and around which the whole studio moves. The two areas of open space are located to the right and left of this one, while on the perimeter wall of the studio we arranged a second meeting room, Selina’s office, and a large sample room. Londonart’s paper depicting trapeze artists could not be missing in this study either; we like to think that they are the ones who sum up who we are!

HOUSE PRI IN TURIN

HOUSE PRI IN TURIN

A special project, both because it is a beautiful house and because it belongs to the sister of Selina Bertola (founder of the studio) Alice and her family. Alice is one of the two founding members of Asterisco Creative Agency, a communication agency with which Nomade has been collaborating for years when it comes to adding a touch of graphics to her projects. The Pure salad bar is the best example! The house is truly unique, a semi-detached villa on 4 levels in a residential area of ​​Turin a stone’s throw from the Po. The architecture of the house dates back to the 1920s, some truly wonderful original traces remain (the staircase, the ceiling frescoes for example), but a previous renovation had distorted many rooms. The idea was to intervene with a project that would enhance the original characteristics and intervene with a contemporary taste, which smelled of “home”. The entrance opens onto the living area. Here a passage was opened that allowed the view of the garden from the house. The passage can remain completely open or be closed, through the use of a specially designed and built iron and glass door. The living area overlooks the garden, where the living room and the dining room are located, connected by a large opening. The furniture is simple, colorful, the result of past inheritances, family pieces and design touches. On the same floor are the study, the kitchen and a guest bathroom. The sleeping area is on the first floor, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and the children’s study. The bathrooms have been completely revisited, clean, with a hint of color and some elegant accents. The attic on the top floor is a large games room, the kingdom of the 2 children. A house where you can breathe a sunny atmosphere, just like the family that lives there, a furniture that makes you feel at ease, without giving up a touch, conscious and refined between vintage and design.

APARTMENT MAGGIOLINA

APARTMENT MAGGIOLINA

Since the first ideas for a project, we can’t wait for the apartment to be built. Nothing could ever be more true, especially for this specific project. The client, a truly unique person, with his wife and three twin children, approached our studio when the Abitare In Maggiolina complex was still only on paper, with very clear ideas: he wanted a beautiful, comfortable home tailored to their family, and with a small swimming pool. The project developed over 4 years, with times that followed the events of the Abitare In construction site, but the enthusiasm both on the part of the clients and obviously of the studio, has always remained high and has led us to the desired results: a beautiful house , comfortable, with a swimming pool! The apartment is clearly divided into two areas, the living area which is accessed opens onto the living room communicating with the kitchen, which in turn open onto a terrace with a truly unique view. Kitchen and living room are characterized by an element that designs and envelops them, a bookcase, which becomes a TV wall and then becomes a kitchen, a strong geometry, lightened by the use of white in stark contrast with dark oak. The choice of the “wanded” design of the wood is dictated by the desire to highlight the geometry, emphasizing its shadows. The furnishings are elegant and comfortable and blend perfectly with the environment. The bookcase divides the living room, with the help of a portal, from the study area. From the desks it is possible to see the pool water and hear its noise, what better way to work from home? From the study you pass to the corridor that leads to the sleeping area, a corridor onto which the 4 bedrooms and bathrooms open. The corridor was emphasized and underlined by the use of color, an ultramarine blue of the ceiling and wall that plays with the white of the opposite wall. The children’s bedrooms are custom designed, the idea was applied in 3 slightly different ways, a wallpaper for each child, which is accompanied by the nuance of the details of the bookcase and desk. The master bedroom is deliberately airy and simple, connected to the walk-in closet and the master bathroom. The bathroom is covered in marble and plays on light-dark contrasts, marbles Calacatta vogue White and Armani grey. The children’s bathroom and the guest bathroom are covered with materials from Porcelanosa. A paragraph itself is deserved by the terrace of this house, large, with a splendid view and a small heated swimming pool, to be used both in summer and in winter. Particular attention was given to the design of the green, with the wise help of Fratelli Ignegnoli. The art project, followed in collaboration with Vera Canevazzi Art Consultant, saw a close collaboration between the Parisian artist Nowart (already an old acquaintance of the Nomade studio) and the client. The theme that was explored was “Van Gogh”, a colorful portrait characterizes the living room, accompanied by the Irises in the corridor (reinterpreted by the artist), ending with the wheat field in the bedroom, a fil rouge that accompanies the whole house theme. The wait for the project was worth it, we and our customers are fully satisfied!

APPARTAMENT SOLARIA

APPARTAMENT SOLARIA

Milan has been changing for some years, new neighborhoods are being born, the city seems to project itself towards the future and increasingly look to foreign models. Some neighborhoods simply change, becoming new pulsating centers of Milano. This is the case of Porta Nuova, a neighborhood that rewrites the history of a piece of Milan, a modern neighborhood, of glass buildings and skyscrapers that soar into the sky. Torre Solaria is at the center of these new architecture, with its 143 meters it is the tallest residential building in Italy. Here the home project of a young professional couple came to life who wanted to completely rethink the interior and layout of the apartment, to transform it into something they could call and feel like Home. Hygge the style that was requested, this is an untranslatable word in our language, but we can explain it: Hygge is about personal well-being, sharing with loved ones and attachment to one’s home. And so a research was born, which managed to combine warmth and comfort with a modern apartment with a contemporary cut. The entrance opens onto a small corridor that leads to the living area. Here the kitchen opens onto the living area. Light is the absolute protagonist, with a truly unique view of the city. The intention, right from the start, was to create interiors with warm finishes, with a particular eye on functionality. The wood is a warm oak, with details in brass and black iron, all embellished with the Calacatta marble used in the kitchen and on the counter that connects the two areas. The furnishings were made to a design by the studio, everything is tailor-made for the home. The sleeping area has two bedrooms and two bathrooms connected to each other by a large and bright wooden walk-in closet, mirror and iron details. The master bedroom enjoys a splendid view, even here wood is the protagonist of the furnishings, studied and designed in detail. The wadded wood embellishes the head of the bed.

CESCOLINA² – MILAN

CESCOLINA² – MILAN

Cescolina² is the “older sister” of Cescolina, the first home of Selina Bertola (founder of the studio) and her family, “to the square” because in the meantime the family has doubled and from 2 it has gone to 4. This house has something magical, also linked to particular coincidences of fate that convinced Selina to pursue her dream and buy it. The house had been renovated in the late 90s by a Milanese architect who had masterfully transformed an old factory into a home where light is the real protagonist. The house is spread over 4 levels, connected by a sculptural staircase that overlooks the large inclined window. The house looks like a modern reinterpretation of the Roman Domus, which opens onto a central courtyard, in this house made of windows that look at each other. The interiors have been revised, but the plan layout has remained almost unchanged, with the exception of a few small demolitions. ‘Eclectic’ is the adjective that best describes the choices followed in the interiors, a succession of colorful environments, different from each other, as if they were small neighborhoods within a city, each characterized by its own spirit. As much as it can be generically defined Loft, this house manages to maintain separation and privacy, with a secluded and traditional sleeping area. The entrance opens onto a large room that allows the gaze to perceive the complex architecture of the house, in the background the large double-height window that floods the space with light. Here the neon sign Cescolina², crowned by a large chandelier, welcomes those who enter. On this floor are the double bedroom with its bathroom in Moroccan cement tiles with gray-green nuances and the children’s bedroom, with a bathroom directly connected. On this level there is another small guest bathroom strongly characterized by the Fornasetti Theater wallpaper. The staircase continues towards the highest part of the house, where there is the kitchen with island overlooking the courtyard and the dining room. The kitchen has clean lines, characterized by a Statuario marble, in the dining area the blue table designed specifically for the project captures the view, accompanied by a wall colored by photographs and illustrations. From this level it is possible to access the spacious terrace. Going down the stairs you reach the TV area and the study. The TV area is very colorful, characterized by a large Hermes wallpaper with an illustration by the French artist Kevin Lucbert, the sofas are the Togo by Ligne Roset, the carpet is a purchase of Selina on a trip to Morocco and the library was specially designed by her for the environment. The study, which is located on the same level, is instead characterized by a more retro flavor, lamp, furniture and decorations are family memories. On the lower floor, the descent was an excuse to create a cinema room, a truly unique setting for a Milanese.

Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. The project was very conservative, where possible openings were created and some rooms were breathed in, a new bathroom was created upstairs but essentially, completely unexpectedly, it was possible to rediscover the old beams, the walls in stone and the vaults in mattioni that had been covered for centuries. The house has thus acquired a truly fascinating rural character, which more than ever brings to mind the long history lived in those walls. The materials chosen are in line with the type of project and the final effect that was wanted to be obtained, the furnishings were largely recovered and rearranged.

VILLA AE LAKE COMO

VILLA AE LAKE COMO

In the magnificent setting of Lake Como, in an extremely characteristic small town, an old hotel had been converted into apartments. The ground floor and the mezzanine floor had been designed to become a restaurant, but the project had never been realized. The original state of the premises was unfinished, without systems with very thick walls and vaults in stone and brick, all of which gave the rooms a splendid atmosphere. The clients, in love with the place and the potential enclosed in those walls, immediately asked that it be kept as much of those pre-existences as possible, however much they wanted a house full of comfort. The challenge was immediately accepted with great enthusiasm, thus creating a splendid home. The house is divided into two floors, connected by an internal staircase, on the upper floor the entrance opens onto the large kitchen which is deliberately left clean and linear, to underline the importance of the stone wall. This overlooks the living room and the master bedroom with attached bathroom that look directly onto the lake. From the kitchen you continue towards the dining room, a truly unique environment because it is enclosed between stone walls and a large vaulted brick ceiling, which surmounts the space by wrapping it. A guest bedroom with its internal bathroom concludes the first floor. The stone staircase leads to the lower floor which opens onto a play room entirely covered in stone. This in turn is connected to a TV area that allows access to the children’s room with dedicated bathroom and a second living area that overlooks the internal garden. On the lower floor there is also an additional guest bedroom with bathroom and a laundry room. Great importance was given to the existing finishes, stone and brick walls, arches and passages. The project was aimed at creating a contrast between the elements that are so strongly characterizing and a clean and minimal furniture that embellished the rooms without competing with the existing character. The bathrooms are mainly in resin and stone, with natural colors, designed to accompany the atmosphere of the house with a touch of charm.

VILLA AD ON THE LAKE

VILLA AD ON THE LAKE

In the magnificent setting of Lake Como, a splendid 1920s villa has been given new life, which links it to its past and projects it into the future. The clients, a truly unique family, bought the villa after seeing several properties on the lake. Although their taste is particularly contemporary and clean, they have chosen a historic property, and so this project has represented a magnificent challenge. Right from the start it was decided to play on the dualism between pre-existing liberty style of the facades and a contemporary and contrasting taste in the interiors, maintaining as a common thread the choice of materials, which would dialogue with the lake environment, so that the colors of the exterior and of the interior communicating with each other. The kitchen / dining room, communicating with the living room through a passage emphasized by a Nemo lamp, is a single room, characterized by a kitchen designed specifically for the project in Cardoso stone and smoked oak wood. The kitchen is clean, elegant and dialogues with the stone that was chosen for the floor covering.

The project is organized on two levels, plus a mezzanine: The ground floor houses the reception, a small waiting area and the three massage cabins, two inside the velvet cocoons on the mezzanine floor and one in the area behind the cashier. The wall behind the reception desk is covered in wallpaper that incorporates the logo and the foliage symbol of Waterbeat Society. Above all, suspended and unexpected you will find the motto of Waterbeat Society: BE A HYDROLOVER, a pink neon sign that stands out in the air, with a touch of innocent boldness typical of this project. An iconic glass elevator leads downstairs. The eye is immediately captured by the natural cement stucco wall on which stands the pink neon that shows the logo. From the waiting room it is possible to see the swimming pool through a large window.Through a long, white and bright corridor, a sort of chromatic pause, you can access the male and female changing rooms and the pool. The access to the pool is through a short staircase, here the back wall is covered in water-repellent wallpaper, on which there are logo and foliage. The niches, used for storing exercise tools and showers, are covered with the same tiles present in the reception. Changing rooms are characterized by very fresh accents. Here there is a game of two colors, water blue for women and blue for men, while the showers are covered in white tiles, with black grout in this case. Strong and characterizing elements, unexpected materials and bright colors are the ingredients that characterize Waterbeat Society, an innovative place, which is the result of the contamination of different cultures, inspirations and passions.

OFFICE LIBERA BRAND BUILDING

OFFICE LIBERA BRAND BUILDING

The new headquarters of Libera Brand Building is located in Milan, in one of the areas mostly under development, a few hundred meters from Fondazione Prada. The offices occupy the top floor of a former industrial building. A very large plan, a total of about 350 square meters, with a large terrace of 50 square meters. The intent of the project, very clear from the beginning, was to insert itself the industrial setting with an intervention that would exalt its character and history, with a strong and characterizing tone. And so the project is played on the balance between the existing structure and volumes inserted in the environment that openly dialogue with the pre-existent, creating unexpected situations. The project takes on an almost domestic character, due to the unique way in which the office environments were treated. The office opens up to a clean and monolithic black reception.The reception wall conceals the real heart of the space, a volume that is soon unveiled and that includes a bar-kitchen, designed as a support to the events that will take place in the space, as well as kitchen for daily office use. Opposite the bar is the large meeting room, enclosed by a large glass wall, which can be opened completely if required. The meeting room remains strong and dramatic by the choice of the black color used on the wall. The environment is warm and welcoming despite having an industrial echo. The lighting is heterogeneous, industrial lamps and burrs of lights created by strips of perimeter led, the effect is enveloping. Great role is played by the ceiling of the space, the original roof that wraps and overpowers the entire space. The offices and the open work space follow the stylistic dictates of the entrance, extending the industrial design effect.

LOFT N

LOFT N

The apartment is the result of the conversion of an industrial building, the loft par excellence, in one of the most fashionable areas of the moment, Shoreditch. The desire from the beginning was to create a home that let the flavor of the story that had been lived within those walls. An industrial flavor that does not conceal the past, indeed it kept it alive. The living area occupies the lower part of the loft, with a kitchen, dining area and large double height living room, on which overlooks the sleeping area located on the mezzanine. The colors and the materials are of a warm palette, enveloping. A mix between industrial and residential, where the raw wax iron and the large windows play an important role as a binder between the past and the future of the property. The bathrooms have a retro feel, with cement tiles that characterize the environment connoting a taste that ties in perfectly with the rest of the house. The owners, a young Italian couple, brought with them memories of their trips, Sundays spent in vintage markets such as Portobello Road, so that the house becomes also a kind of travelogue, where every corner, every detail speaks of their history. The basement of the house has been converted into a tavern for the parties, with a kitchen and a large dining table, built to host the whole family from Italy for special occasions! The TV area is surrounded by a large sofa, perfect for relaxed Sundays with friends!

APARTMENT P

APARTMENT P

Located in a nice residential area in Milan, the apartment is part of an elegant and well designed 1920’s complex. The project was focused on the specific needs and requirements of the clients, a nice family made of 6 people (father, mother and 4 kids from 0 to 7 years old). The intention was to open up the space, visually connecting the rooms by creating a game of sights that could whisper but not reveal the interiors. The living room and Kitchen are visually connected and enriched by two full height custom made glazed doors. These are thought to become discrete decorating panels while opened, or elegant doors when closed. The living room is fully embraced by the natural light that comes from the windows facing the park in front of the house. The atmosphere is elegant and relaxing, an important role is played by the lights that become sculptures on the ceiling. The Tv is hidden behind a painting that moves up or down when needed. The kitchen is fully designed and custom made, the central island is a block of Calacatta Marble, the chandeliers once again give an interesting character to the space, by creating a twist between classic and design. The girls bedroom is a precious gem, a sort of doll house for the baby girls and their toys. A Romantic bow window is enriched by a comfortable sofa, where little tea pots and cups become lights. The guest bathroom is decorated with dark grey resin and Calcatta Vagli marble in the full height shower and sink. The contrast between the dark color and the golden veins of the marble creates a unexpected and pleasant atmosphere. The main bathroom, connected to the bedroom, is luminous and elegant, the white Calacatta marble illuminates the space, a touch of romance permeates the space.

VILLA SUSANNA

VILLA SUSANNA

Brand new construction, the idea to create a “nest” perfectly integrated with the surrounding nature. The architecture wants to be a blend of Creole architecture (with its patios, pitched roofs, shingles) and the typical Italian taste of the clients. Inside and Outside want to be unique: the large windows allow to forget that there is a limit between the vegetation and the environments of the house. The House wants to breathe and integrate seamlessly with the environment.
