35. APARTMENT IN CA BRUTTA

Milano

Topic

Refurbishment of an apartment in a historical building.

 

Project choices

Reaffirmation of the original articulation of the spaces as designed by Muzio, with the variation of conferring an important architectural and functional meaning to the central distribution hallway. Being the spine of the house, it has been enhanced by the following interventions: on its section (now as high and large as possible); on the views (with interferences of light and a new background); on the materials (terrazzo design by Maggie Cardelus); on the lighting (irregular, point shaped and oriented); and on the objects within (works of art, teak and glass doors). All these interventions brought back the hallway's monumental character.
