Attic in Prague
As soon as I saw this attic in the center of Prague, in a state of total
ruin, the thing that struck me most was the light.
A soft, but intense light, a beautiful and magical light.
This was the positive aspect of the space, to which were added the criticality of a very low attic ceiling (2.40 m) and the inconvenience of the sloping mansard roof which, as a practical matter, reduced the apartment’s useful space.
In the total renovation of the apartment, I thought to leave the
spaces as open as possible in order not to diminish the light and to
use the glass to reflect it.
Wanting to soften the color of the interior - the total white would have been almost blinding - I opted for greige on the walls, but keeping an ivory white on the ceiling, and laying a whitewashed wooden floor to visually enlarge the space.
I then played on the materials, linen in the pale gray, pink and yellow declinations, to give an atmosphere of serenity and comfort inside.
All the wooden beams have been painted white. The only two
elements of unpainted wood in the interior, but suitably bleached,
are the steps of the staircase, which leads to the upper floor and the
dining table designed and made also of light wood.
I chose as a focal point of the living room a Wall & Deco wallpaper, which declined the same palette of my interior.
I then designed all custom built-in furniture to use those attic spaces
that otherwise would have remained unused. I finally opted for
doors without handles, so as not to distract from the purity of the
Verzelloni sofa, Guadarte desks, table lamps by Tato Italia, Estro and Artemide. Chandelier in the dining area by Innermost. Bathroom faucets: Bugnatese and Cea Design.
