Casa DM, Tirano

A double-height loft, an intervention where works have already started, a young family and their home renovation. This project is focused on reorganizing the open-plan living space, enhancing its verticality and preserving the layout of the rooms – bathrooms excluded. Fulcrum is the living zone, a convivial area organized around a fireplace that separates the dining area from the study. The kitchen island is characterized by an iron pergola introduced to rebalance the double height. On the opposite side the study, overlooked by a bookcase and separated by a wide 4 panel door in iron and glass. A wood & iron staircase connects the floor with the mezzanine used as a TV area. Reclaimed fir wood, oak, iron, glass and stone are the materials chosen for the project aimed at emphasizing the materiality of these natural elements. The private area of the house sets on one side the master bedroom and on the other the children’s one.

What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
The main feature of this space is the double height of the living area and the connections generated with it. The kitchen’s iron pergola balances the report with the emptiness of the environment, as does the full-height bookcase in the study, emphasizing the space verticality.
