Casa F+I: Marble in love - Florence 2022I am very attached to this project because all the work was carried out in complete harmony with the client to whom I am linked by a long-standing friendship. The apartment, located on the third floor of a beautiful nineteenth-century Florence building, is large and characterized by a beautiful pentagonal room from which one can enjoy the view of the Brunelleschi Dome. The project, curated with the owner, wanted to maintain the patina and charm of the past, renewing the finishes and modernizing the equipment. "Marble in love" was born from the passion for marble that we find in the bathrooms and in the kitchen with its beautiful worktop in breccia of Capraia: a perfect balance of technology and quality details, modern and classic at the same time. The distribution of the house develops along a large corridor that leads to the living area, consisting of a first conversation room, a double living room and the dining room, in addition to the kitchen with pantry and the guest toilet and bathroom area; the sleeping area consists of the master bedroom with en suite bathroom and walk-in closets as well as a second bedroom - always double - and another bathroom with bath and shower. The warm and bright French oak parquet is balanced by the grey tones of the living area walls. Lighting - at times diffused and hidden, at other times punctual and protagonist - generates different environments and what was once a dark and austere home, today vibrates with light and energy.
