TOWN HOUSE IN MILAN

In the historical center of Milan, a town house enjoys unique privacy and peacefulness.
Our project, by means of structural, technological, and archeological works, transformed a rough unfinished building into a residence provided with all kind of comfort, characterized by ample spatial geometries, by light, and by materials – as iron, steel, stone, wood – declaring their true nature with no filters, matched with wide white walls surfaces. We use technology to save energy, setting low temperature heated floors, solar panels, highly insulated windows, and condensing boiler for hot water and heating.8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 1 8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 2 8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 3 8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 4

The house, on four levels, has private elevator and bespoke designed stairs made with folded, cut, welded iron sheets, finished with transparent oil to show as tattoos the signs of smith’s work.
The flight of stairs follows the original irregular house shape getting it rational, going up detached from walls to get light pass trough and to gain lightness, and steering with strength when it’s necessary to gain precious space.

Next to it there is the SPA with sauna, shower, fitness equipment and a services area with laundry and garage.

Living’s warm heart is the squared fireplace, built on site in exposed concrete as the wood place next to it. 8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 12_cop 8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 13 8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 14 8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 15 8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 16 8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 17 8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 18 8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 19 8&a Architetti TOWN HOUSE A MILANO 2010 20Kitchen, custom made designed and realized in steel and black stone, is separated from living by a high vertically pivoted door.
