On the fifth floor of an apartment block in downtown Bassano del Grappa, Didonè Comacchio Architects has created a whole new identity for a space that, although empty, was full of constraints. The decisions of the Vicenza-based firm were supported by their clients, a dynamic young couple with an eye for elegance. To begin with, the apartment was a large empty space with an irregular ceiling, whose living area was dominated by the presence of a private elevator.
The project to renovate the apartment began with a study of the available spaces. This created a much-needed hierarchy for the residence, which had previously been lost. The use of a limited palette of quality materials allowed the architects to enhance the interiors through particular combinations of shades and light colors.
The living areas, the fulcrum of the apartment, are defined by a wooden screen, which divides the dining room from the entrance and hides the elevator door, and a large kitchen counter, which, along with the kitchen’s layout, create a different rhythm in this space. The result is an elegant design with clear, clean lines. Daylight permeates the apartment, highlighting the interior finishes.
With its INTERIOR RA design, Didonè Comacchio Architects took the constraints presented by the existing space and transformed them into an apartment with elegant, contemporary style.
