apartment in milan

← Back to the Portfolio

The renovation of a small 19th century annexe in a milanese courtyard is the chance to redesign the stairs, which connect the three levels. The reduced space and the client’s request that the stairs be part of the apartment led to a very articulate volumentric solution: continous changes in the direction of the flights enhance the stage effect, like an Escher drawing. From the entrance overlooking the courtyard, to the attic where the bedroom is located and to the living-room the stairs run through a traditional house by the typical materials of the milanese tradition such as wood and panelling; the modern finishing fits well into the rooms and meets the quest for simple formal balance.
