CITY APARTMENT RETROFIT
[…] “I like intensity. If it’s too mellow, I feel like, bleah. I like intensity, because it’s a way of reaching spaces inside of you, and it’s my need for knowledge, of knowing about myself regardless.” […]
“Caché”is about a restyling of a 160 square meters apartment. State of the art is a sort of melting pot of useless space. The focus is on restoring the original fluidity of the interior and creating a correct composition. First of all, we decided to move the present entrance and second, we enlarged the terrace to design an interior garden. A bespoke bookcase defines the perimeter of the distribution space and works as a wall system rather than a hallway. Here, we placed a cocktail bar area and a working space area with a large desk. Following the bookcase, you will get to the living. Beautiful ribbon windows marked the lounge area and the kitchen space. A glasses sliding doors separates the leaving area from the kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with an island for breakfast and a table with a bench for daily launch. We choose marble for the plan finishes because we want to put a material that can change its features with time and use. We’d love to have organic materials and use them as a value for this apartment. We filtred the night area with a screening room. In a false ceiling, we hide dimmable lights to modulate the enlightenment. We designed the sleeping area to guarantee privacy for any room. We placed the master bedroom with its bathroom close to the garden. The other two rooms (children, guests) are in the opposite part of the apartment, easily reachable for any demand.
All pieces of furniture are bespoke designed, and we selected all finishes through a process that took into consideration the cycle of production and the origin of manufacture.
