Flo project is an attempt to update history. Our target was to revive a building of historical significance that has been transformed into a featureless office and has lost all its traits and originality.
We kept the basic structure of the building intact, but we intervened at the level of finishing. We dismantled the carpet on the floor and restored the parquet removing multiple layers of paint from it for to preserve the authenticity. We tried to reinvigorate the historical spirit of the building being inspired by the noble Italian buildings of the Renaissance and so we have put some frescoes on the ceiling. The images of the Renaissance create a unique atmosphere and in combination with the colour of the walls form a warm, harmonious and comfortable ambience.
We updated the interior with minimalist furniture and have obtained a salon that corresponds to the melancholy of history, being inviting and noble and harmoniously blending with the modernism.
