SET Architects completes an early 1900 apartment that plays on the dialogue between history and modernity. The use of natural materials such as wood and marble, the careful study of colours and the relationship between light and shadows give life to a project with an elegant atmosphere suspended over time. The strategy of the project is to adapt the flat to the contemporary lifestyle of the young owners through large and fluid spaces while retaining some elements that recall the original character of the apartment. The leitmotif of all the intervention is the use of white walls and oak wood giving at the same time an essential and warm feeling to the domestic environment. The purity of the rooms is therefore contaminated by a game of contrasts with original elements of the apartment such as Carrara marble, the white lacquered wooden window frames, and the lamps designed to reflect the spirit of that time.
