ATZ – San Vito

A classic mid-nineteenth Milanese apartment serves as the frame for this project.
The main goal was the creation of an apartment in which a contemporary approach could fit within the unique soul of the original space.

The internal distribution has undergone some changes to meet the needs of the new tenants, a couple with two children, who often love to host friends and family at home.
The dining room and the living room, initially divided by an internal wall, have been united, creating a single vast space, defined by calm green light.
The prominent feature of the apartment is its long hallway, a large distribution space that connects the living and sleeping areas, creating fascinating perspectives throughout the space.
Here, the original and diverse floors have been removed and replaced with a continuous surface of contemporary cement tiles, which, referring to the traditional Milanese ones, give a touch of contemporaneity thanks to their geometric design.
The main bathroom has undergone the most important renovation, combining travertine details with Moroccan design tiles, which juxtapose the flooring of the corridor.

Renovation of aspacious duplex, located in the heart of the historic center of Milan.

On the lower floor, living room, kitchen and study are designed as spaces in sequence delimited by full-height glass partitions, which, once opened, leave the perimeter wall free, creating suggestive perspectives that embrace the space in its entirety.
Particularly important are the custom-made furnishings.
The kitchen on this level is in fact custom designed and conceived as a standalone piece of furniture, extremely functional in a minimal operating space.
Moreover, one side of the living room is bordered by a wooden bench, covered with black marble slabs, which is taken up by the stair treads, and which acts as a support base for a storage unit that houses a small fireplace.
The most private area on this level consists of a guest bedroom, a bathroom, and a double bedroom, equipped with two walk-in closets and an en suite bathroom.
The upper level houses a small painting studio, a bathroom, and a second living area, consisting of the apartment’s main kitchen and the dining area.
The latter is located in a glass volume, which offers a panoramic view of the surrounding rooftops and skyline.
