Penthouse with patio in Milan

Photographer: Stefano Campoantico

At the beginning the house didn’t  exist.

There was just a plan for a flat like many others to be built by a real estate construction company. According the papers the house would have been split in two: dwelling downstairs, terrace on the level above, with no visual relationship between the two parts.

The client, an art and gardens lover, used to live before in a house facing a great terrace, and she would have been unhappy living in the new place.

So the need of a new start with a total rethinking, conceiving a core that would become the strength of the new project: an element to balance the interior, allowing a visual link with the exterior above, creating a symbiobis, a complementarity  between the two spaces, to make them a unique entity.

So the idea of a glass patio in the hearth of the house, a patio generated transforming an opaque volume (a room) in a transparent one, anticipating downstairs the pleasure to go out on a terrace, more intimate and then the one above on the 10° floor.

In this way there is a spatial dilation, a tension toward the higher level and an enrichment of 360° visual paths, made even faster moving by the rotation through 17 degrees of some wall around the central core: so the living room is slotted in between two newly-created open spaces (the patio and the terrace on the corner), giving access to and/or separating off other spaces that gain greater breadth and depth as a result.

Axis rotation combined with the slope of the roof generates vertical surfaces with always different dimensions: everything looks apparently casual, natural; on the opposite everything has been thoroughly designed.

Furnishing project was conceived together with the house plan: it had to be essential, white and tailor made to be an organic whole. Recent pieces were also chosen from the market, like the Pallucco-Rivier table (for its typological innovation), and other pieces like the Albini writing desk  have added a past-time flavour to the scheme.

All around, the art collection, a reflection of the discerning, sophisticated client.
