APARTMENT IN BRERA DISTRICT IN MILAN

The apartment, in the heart of elegant Brera district, had originally a fifties  scheme, with many dark corridors and small rooms.
To satisfy clients’ request, plan has been completely redesigned, creating diagonal paths that enhance the space, to get an ample living, in communication with a contemporary kitchen, that can be hidden by two big sliding doors that disappear in the wall when they are opened.
