Loft Apartment – Milan, Italy By Frederic Gooris And Werner Silvestri



A transformed soap factory, the Loft Apartment in Milan, Italy embodies a cozy, but spacious vibe. Produced by Industrial Designer Frederic Gooris in collaboration with Architect Werner Silvestri, this contemporary dream apartment portrays a distinctive consider on a live-operate space.

Created with a glass box as its architectural highlight, this residence is light-filled and airy thanks to high ceilings and restored factory windows. Broad-plank rustic wood floors contribute warmth towards these industrial elements, as do the unique arched brickwork ceilings which are nothing at all much less than splendorous. In truth, the children’s nursery the place this vintage element is featured is reminiscent of a sweet fairy tale.

The property workplace is ensconced in the elevated glass compartment which overlooks vast majority of the apartment. Painted white brickwork and beamed ceilings comprise the soaring living area which characteristics a low-lying built-in storage console and is gracefully furnished with comfortable, contemporary furnishings. The black metal window framing is a striking offset to this mainly white palette, although the delicate drapes soften any edges. This open program permits for a lot of area to loosen up, collect and play–you’ve got to adore that child’s swing!

The kitchen is compact, but lovely with a complete backsplash of smooth grey stone against white flat cabinetry. This prep/cook zone can be masterfully hidden once the retractable door panels are closed. The dining space then cleverly–and oh-so-easily–becomes the meeting room. A large wooden oval table is flanked by white metal grid chairs allowing this convertible area to stay spacious.

Several methods ascend to the following degree, which displays a smaller glass box echoing the office style, and leads to the private locations of the dwelling. The master bathroom is sleek with tawny stone tiling, a glazed stroll-in shower and an urn-like basin. The soaking tub nestles inside of a dark, glossy wood platform which is so inviting.

The Loft Apartment is a fashionable modern day dream residence injected with a fresh method to area maximization and flexibility.
