In order to achieve it a series of spaces office-like and more intimate ones are organized, placed on different heights, creating the sense of a flat much bigger than 50 sqm. The kitchen is reduced to the minimum of surface and minimum of design: light blue tubulars with micro perforated shelves holds a marine plywood’s plan. The same aesthetic is used for all the punctual interventions in the entrance room: a thin metal wall partially open, a removable staircase to the upper existing loft and a parapet with an integrated work plan. The sleeping area in the adjacent room is located on a second mezzanine. The underneath area thus remains free of fixed elements, acquiring a temporary and flexible nature, suiting multiple uses. The cement resin floor covers all the rooms at the ground floor, except for the bathroom drawn by the ten-by-ten white tiles grid.
The apartment, used previously as a studio, is located in Brera, one of the artsy neighborhood in Milan’s city center. The project rethinks the house as a hybrid space in which users can easily performs domestic and productive activities, whether they are freelancers, art operators or just occasional tourists.
