X Loft Project

Item details

An ancient Roman apartment, previously organized around a blind corridor, has been completely transformed into a large and bright space that generates perspectives that emphasize the existing load-bearing structure. The red color is used to visually connect the different functional areas and to give a strong characterization to the living area. The gaze flows without interruption following the beams and red columns that thus define the entire loft. The kitchen follows the same concept: it incorporates the existing load-bearing structure and creates a strong synergy between architecture and furnishings (all designed according to the architect's design). The bedroom is separated from the living area through a "double skin" wall that contains the wardrobes. The apartment has two bathrooms: the master bathroom and the guest bathroom. The latter uses the irregular shapes of the building to create an environment with an industrial and modern flavor. The master bathroom suggests a more intimate and private atmosphere through the use of pure forms and relaxing colors. The choice of materials creates a contrast between warm colors and essential style finishes.
