Renovating an outdated apartment usually implies undoing the errors of previous additions and poorly planned makeovers that turn an outdated house into a dark and congested setting. The story of this 120-square-meter apartment in Varese, Italy is rather equivalent till the creative folk from Luca Compri have been brought in to get rid of the needless internal partitions and convert it into a chic, contemporary hub. And the transformation is genuinely exceptional as outdated walls and long corridors have been accomplished away with to produce an open living area and dining space and with 3 box-styled volumes currently being added to hold the new walk-in-closet, 2 bathrooms and a wonderful kitchen.
With a distinct modern vibe and a neutral colour scheme that is dominated by shades of gray and white (with a hint of black thrown in to highlight certain architectural characteristics), the revitalized apartment is each refined and inviting. There is an undeniable sense of ‘cheerfulness’ in the air as wise design and style brings in ample organic light even even though opening up the interior to the view outside. Raw iron sheets used to shape the new box-like additions along with warm oak surfaces make certain that there is ample textural contrast without ever disturbing the shade palette.
A series of huge storage units that blend into the woodsy backdrop of the kitchen make positive that visual clutter is stored to a minimal and the décor additions also include to this sense of ‘restrained minimalism’ A spacious and ergonomic kitchen with a fantastic central island turns into the focal level of the residing region and eco-pleasant finishes and power-saving fixtures cap off the outstanding renovation.
