STAND BY ME
A LITTLE APARTMENT BORN FROM AN EX SHOEMAKER LAB
“[…] It’s about cultures; they widen the dimensions of the present, they vanquish the walls of the narrow perception. They make you look forward to experiencing a new life that is full of unusual things.”
“Stand by me” is a conversion of a small shoemaker lab into a summer vacation apartment. “[…]This was a shoemaker’s lab once! Did you know?”. He had to be in his fifties, big hands and a lively gaze typical of someone who knows his trade. “I poured this floor myself, but now, to renew the place, it needs to be smoother and brighter, do what you can. Then, I want a grand entrance that covers that kettle there and a floating table. Hey guys, I like wine! Keep it in mind. I come here on vacation from now on!”…The rest of the story is a flat playing on a few elements defining this nice loft. An entrance/pantry that hides utilities and accessories, completed with a Corian table to call up the kitchen top. To the warm colour of the rosewood, respond the thin black sections of the ceiling lamp and wall furniture that enhance the tones of the micro cement floor.
