TB Penthouse, an eclectic apartment for a couple of art collectors
By Edoardo Milesi & Archos -

In this eclectic penthouse, designed by Edoardo Milesi & Archos for a couple of art collectors, different colors mark different functional areas. The apartment is located in a newly built residential building in the hilly area of Torre Boldone, on the outskirts of Bergamo, overlooking the town and the first mountains of the Seriana Valley.

Every detail of the interiors has been thought and created to satisfy the desire of a comfortable, intimate, and tidy home. At the entrance, an iron and glass compass enriched with plants serves a corner where to take off shoes and coats, and leads into the living area. The latter is conceived as a seamless open space loft overlooking the large panoramic terrace open to the valley.

Once inside, a progression of volumes made of different materials leads to discover all the spaces of the house, sometimes hidden by secret doors and occasionally revealed by small details. Walnut and birch wood for the partitions, designed to separate spaces and contain objects, oil-treated oak wood for floors, a green resin island - floor, walls, and furniture - for the kitchen. In the toilets, colored ceramics only where needed and wallpaper in the guest bathroom.

All furniture is custom-made and combined with classic design objects collected over the years by the owners, such as the bedside table Traccia by Meret Oppenheim, the wooden bed Dodicesima notte signed by Luca Meda in the master bedroom, here freely proposed without headboard padding and, still in this room, the blue EDO chair by Kisho Kurokawa.

The main elements of the living area are the two polychrome Wink armchairs designed by Toshiyuki Kita, in sharp contrast with the slender lines of the DS-450 sofa by Thomas Althaus and Barrel chairs in solid wood by Frank Lloyd Wright, arranged around the custom-designed dining table, which is located between the living room and the kitchen.
