Milan,Apartment in Brera

Living "in Brera", as they say in Milan, is a real privilege. The area is one of the richest in history and beautiful architecture of the past, but also of premises in front of which in the evening there is a young crowd that celebrates the ritual of meeting again. Therefore, our project goal was not only to create the right interior, but also to protect the privacy of the owners from possible noise outside. The apartment has a surface of 150 square meter and is located on the sixth floor of a modern building. The owners, a couple of professionals, love to collect ojects and art during their travels. Entrance, large living room, kitchen, master bedroom, guest room...

Award winning,Trompe l’Oeil Collection

Kilim rugs are world re-known for the simplicity of the sign and the unique flat tapestry weaving. SoFarSoNear idea was to inject a little Italian style and combine the traditional handcraft with the motifs familiar to the Italian iconography. A true fusion between East and West, between the classical motifs of two great cultures, Persia and Italy.

The collection features different themes: 'Sicilian Baroque' with the typical facades of the churches and palaces of Sicily, 'Roman Empire' with temples and statues, 'Behind the...

Milan,Urban Chic Loft

A loft is a space originally built for industrial use that was later converted into living space. Lofts are characterized by wide-open rooms, high ceilings supported by thick columns and large windows. A loft is like a blank canvas and it can be a challenge to convert it into an apartment. Empty spaces with no amenities like a kitchen or a bedroom. This space is part of a large compound isolated from the street with beautiful greenery all around. Our goal was to keep the original architecture made of iron and concrete, but develop a living space cosy and chic. The clients did also request to have a studio at ground floor level, divided from the private area...

Milan,Penthouse steps from Duomo

Located in the historical center of Milan, in a modern building from the 70s, this apartment enjoys a view over the roofs thanks to the small terraces that surround the penthouse. The goal of the project was to keep the original plan and revisit the layout of the rooms and the overall decoration. A real challenge considering that the apartment was in a tremendous state, due to years of neglect. The premise had to accomodate a couple with a child and their furnishing, including a fully equipped kitchen, coming from the previous apartment. The moodboard developed specifically for the project features classic elements combined with modern ones. The colour palette mixes neutral tones, like taupe for the walls of the...
