GC apartment: an airy house with clean lines, full of character
This apartment, whose we have taken care of, is located just outside the historic center of Rovereto, on the ground floor of a newly built building.
The design began with customized furnishings and advice regarding which design furniture to buy. Then we moved on to the garden project. In the Dream Book, the young couple wrote: “Let’s imagine a house that is airy with clean lines. Any furniture not “inserted” in the wall we expect them to be particular, with character, obviously different (statue, antique or modern furniture) “. Our architectural studio was asked to develop a flexible design, which could be modified in the future and in perfect aesthetic balance between the classic and the contemporary (which doesn’t happen often, to tell you the truth); a challenge indeed!
GC apartment: the dream to come true
The GC apartment, arranged on one level, is mainly oriented to the south-west and its plan is similar to a trapezoid, not an easy task to arrange and furnish. Furthermore, there are two ways to access this apartment: one internal, condominium and one external, private. Through the large windows you can enjoy the view of the large garden, the panorama of Rovereto and the Adige valley.
The custom-made furniture project concerns the living and sleeping areas, the study and the garden. The living area reinterprets the passing hall (portego) of the ancient Venetian palaces in a contemporary key. The large living room, paved in Venetian Terrazzo and dominated by the large design island sofa, just like a passing hall connects the condominium entrance and the private entrance. The living room is in continuity with the kitchen and study spaces, both characterized by irregularly shaped island furniture, with calacatta gold marble tops. The kitchen overlooks the pergola of the outdoor kitchen through the largest window of the house. The study, which is a truly multifunctional space, also functioning as a wardrobe (and in the future a second room), constitutes a further access to the garden. The outdoor space winds between a narrow passage paved in Venetian Terrazzo and flanked by hedges, with terraces at different levels. The largest part of the garden showcases aromatic plants, herbs and roses where the sun shines greatest and hydrangeas, ivy and rhododendrons in the shady areas..
GC apartment: our project between interior design, exterior design and the completed work
The design enhances the spatial characteristics of the accommodation: the trapezoidal shape of the space is resolved by ribbons of bespoke furnishings that run along the walls, irregularly shaped designer furnishings stand out in the center of the living area, large windows and French windows framing the garden. The finishes of the furnishings, some in a light pearl grey, others white, combining with the light beige colour of the Venetian Terrazzo floor, laid in a medium size, enhance the custom-made furniture in canaletto walnut, the fabric of the sofa and the beds.
In the sleeping area the canaletto walnut is still present on the walls, and the fabric reflects the colours of the living area, giving the rooms a full feeling of relaxation. In the bathrooms the Venetian terrazzo flooring is used and also within the showers, whilst resin is spread across the walls.
With regards to the lighting project, it sees the use of a few LED lighting fixtures in line, aligned with the wire of the beams, which swathe them in light and give the spaces a suggestive and abstract atmosphere. These are flanked by LED spotlights, which are able to improve the brightness of the space in the evening and at night. On the dining table, the island, and in the study, two impressive blown glass chandeliers draw the attention of visitors to the two hubs of family life. The sofa and the two islands form a sort of “internal landscape” of the apartment: they seem to conjure precisely the idea of islands, scattering a small lake.
