The Rinascente department store is a Milanese icon, and one of the city’s faces. Our brief for the renovation plan for Rinascente’s women swear floor was to incorporate elements that would give visitors a tangible sense of the city. Our first move was to install 17 large windows, reminiscent of those seen around Milan, to function as subtle space dividers. Inspired by the unexpected encounters with shop windows, courtyard gardens and public squares that come from wandering Milan’s back streets, we applied a film to the windows to make them opaque when viewed from an angle but transparent when viewed directly.

Multipurpose Art Gallery / by atelier rzlbd

“We work the clay in the shape of a vase, for it is precisely where there is nothing that the effectiveness of the vase resides. We make openings for doors and windows to make a house, for it is precisely where there is nothing that the effectiveness of the house resides. Thus, we think that we benefit from things that are tangible, but it is precisely where we do not perceive anything that true effectiveness resides.” _Lao Tzu

atelier rzlbd 01

6 Steps to Building a Luxury Bathroom

Bathroom-Remodeling-MH-hp-mdnCreating a new bathroom for a home is usually about getting the electrical fittings done, and installing the required fixtures. However, if you’re planning to build a luxury bathroom, you will need to do a little more planning and pay real attention to the details. In the following article we discuss the steps needed to build a luxury bathroom that’s worth it…

#1: Decide on the Design

When building a luxury bathroom, start with the design. Consult with a good architect for planning out the bathroom space. You can also get design ideas from interior decorating magazines and websites. If your luxury bathroom is a part of the complete home construction project, then things like the bathroom’s size, shape, plumbing, etc. can be incorporated into the home’s general architectural plan.

#2: Prepare the Budget

Constructing a luxury bathroom can eat into your budget if you don’t set it right. And that’s something you don’t want. So right in the beginning stage, you need to prepare a construction budget for the bathroom. Make sure you include all the necessary supplies/materials that are required for remodeling without going overboard with the budget.

#3: Hire a Contractor

When you hire a contractor, he will employ his own construction workers in order to build the luxury bathroom. Besides that, a contractor will also be responsible for bringing in any subcontractors as needed. Each of the subcontractor such as electrician, mason and the carpenter will have to be brought at the right stage of the project to get his portion completed.
