When space is limited, the contemporary minimalism is a good way to go. But how to stay in the balancing point between homey comfort and bold modernism? Well, the Italian architects from R3Architetti succeeded quite remarkably with this apartment renovation project located in Turin, Italy. The house offers clean-lined simplicity, intriguing shapes and space solutions and harmonious balance in color and materials palette.
The living and the privet quarters are, on one hand, distinctively divided on other united in interior composition choices. The materials that are used throughout the apartment present a spectrum of raw, undisguised elements enhanced in their most authentic expression. Polished and raw concrete, glass and wood, white plaster and black metal frames, are supplemented by soft textures and fresh bespoke elements.
The color scheme also has its continuity and integrity – warm earthy tonalities are balanced by the whiteness of the base, the gray hues that are inspired by the natural color of the concrete find their frame in the dark elements of the decor. A cozy reading and relaxing niches spread throughout the apartment invite and delight bespoke furnishing (mainly from warm wood), and designer’s lighting solutions complete the stylish character of the design. Simple yet vibrant, modern yet homey this apartment interior is a worthy representative of contemporary Italian design.
