The Arch House
Milano

Back to works

The renovation of this apartment in the historical center of Milan is an operation of purification of the elements built over time that have marred the structure and the original historical characteristics of the space. This process has brought the soul of the place to light; twelve arches strung along the bearing structure that longitudinally divides the apartment in two creating three separate zones transversally: living, dining and kitchen, and bedrooms. Communication between the environments only occurs at the arched passageways. The project develops through the enhancement of these classical architectural elements that become the protagonists of the spatial scene. White as the dominant color and the concrete floor underline the intent to maintain a neutral approach in order to highlight the architecture of the space and its characteristic elements.
