Because of the prices of sale and rent is definitely not accessible to all, more and more we are used to living in limited size, but if in the restructuring , we rely on technical experts, you are able to obtain design solutions that are capable of making comfortable and habitable even the houses more small not doing them among other things to seem anonymous and disorganized bunker full of total-white (there have in fact always taught that the first rule to make it seem like a bigger house is to dress her all in white: the walls, floors and furnishings including, but is not always so!)
Fundamental, however, for a small house is to have a project to detail that provides furnishings made to measure and according to drawing.
But where to start? Essential is to simplify as much as possible the layout, unifying the space and making it more fluid by the reduction of septa (vertical elements) and the partition walls are not load-bearing, preferring the walls-the container, and the use of glass if natural light is scarce, working on the heights rather than on horizontality, by not selecting too many materials and textures to the tiles and opt for a color palette neutral, but that involves colour accents, which give personality and maybe emphasize the architectural details of the existing site.
An example of a small apartment designed to have everything you need at one of cut, and then a living area where you can invite friends, a kitchen living, a bathroom, a sleeping area and even far two walk-in closets, a private residence just 50 meters in the heart of Florence, restored by Studio Pierattelli Architecture , which makes tailoring the design your own feature.
The study Pierattelli has changed completely to the original configuration of the apartment by removing all of the superfluous, and by choosing to deliver the volumes from bulky furniture and furnishings that would have only reduced the freedom of movement within the space.
From the input collected is accessed, at a lower level, by three steps, to a spacious living room partially elevated in order to create the sleeping area. The focal point of the space is an arc, original painted, as a note of contrast, with an intense indigo blue; a fifth stage to the sixth, which goes to frame the kitchen is linear and without hanging.
A wooden bench made to measure becomes a planter but especially the base of the sofa made with cushions upholstered in denim in the colour of the fabric to take on the shade of blue of the wall painting.
The night area, delimited by a parapet in transparent glass that allows the passage, without interruption, of the light, is accessible through an intriguing cantilevered staircase made of steel structure and lacquered wooden steps natural.
All flooring consists of a wood parquet of oak-mounted plug-in French that, in addition to uniform environments with its warm, natural hue, by means of this kind of pose, manages to give depth to the space by dilating magically the square footage of the living area.
To accompany this, a meticulous and millimeter design choices, the presence of a small window that goes to frame the renaissance dome of the Church of the Holy Spirit and design icons scattered here and there: the lamp Taccia by Achille Castiglioni, the projectors Fort Knox Philippe Stark, the coffee table, elliptical Tulip of Charles and Ray Eames, a fixed bike by hand from the collection hanging on the walls the works of the contemporary photographer Wolfgang Uhlig.
