Como, 2015
An apartment where the walls are functional and welcoming, to reflect the interests and habits of those who live there.
The project has a particular focus on the different nuances of privacy that characterise living places, taking special care to pursue mediation in the relation between shared spaces and more intimate areas.
The pathways inside the house seek to preserve visual continuity, in an almost baroque game of rediscovery of the corridor.
The entrance features a carpet that welcomes visitors to the geometric centre of gravity of the whole apartment: it reflects the symmetry of the paths that pass through it, forming the crossroads.
The wall becomes an inhabited space and holds active objects from the living room and bedroom. It could be a container or a seat, or lodge technical devices from the home.

Even the bathroom, a room dedicated to well-being, is organised according to well-defined areas and separated by glass walls.
