The concept of the C28 Apartment project emerged from minimalist influences and from narratives that guide new ways of designing a space, inspired by premium design and contemporary perspectives. The clients, a young couple with a single child, desired a minimalist, high-functional home, with a touch of lush.
A selection of elements, premium finishes and unique lightning, were carefully picked for the project to highlight the concept of luxury minimalism. Three major principles have guided the design process: a clean, sensorial and scenographic architecture that focuses on the connection and depth of the spaces, containing only a few elements apart from the natural materials.
The two bathrooms in the apartment share the same concept of space and function, the main difference consists in the materials chosen for the floors and walls. An exquisite selection of Machia Vechia marbles which have undergone a sophisticated cut, with abundant veins with color variations within its design are covering the walls of one of the bathrooms, creating a luxurious, yet minimalistic atmosphere, due to the clean approach of the space itself. The lightning and the pure white color are complementing the marble, highlighting it. For the second bathroom, the Crema Marfil travertine is creating a warm and welcoming envinroment, due to it’s neutral tone and uniform distribution of the pattern.
Continuing on the same line of composition, the kitchen and dining area is a combination between the strong presence of the Machia Vechia tiles and the minimalism and simplicity of the volumes, all complemented by the ingenious lightning system.
Strategical lightning points has been placed around the spaces, both on ceilings and walls, which alternates smooth and shiny surfaces with rough and matte textures. This gives the whole a greater depth and shadow so the volumes are better appreciated to the detriment of the plane surfaces. From our point of view, a subtle degree of technical sophistication makes the difference between decoration and architecture.
