Project description from the architects:
Since the family had increased in number after the first renovation of the house the challenge of the project has been to make the most of the available space. The project aims to bring up the family to a multifunctional use of the spaces, without conventional limits. That’s why we decide to give the existing big living room space a multiple function, being at the same time the owner’s bedroom, the living and dining space and the relax area and to to dedicate the only existing room to the newborns.
We decided to heighten half of the room to create a larch wood platform to host the relax space with sofa and tv, using the high difference to hide a rollaway bed and storages. All the new furnitures are made on our own design, in white or champagne lacquered MDF wood.
A new big wardrobe space, conceived externally as a white varnished monolith, but internally totally equipped, divides in two the entrance area, serving also as a decompression space to enter the babies room.
