The project concerns the renovation of an apartment for a young couple set within a historical building in Milan. The restructuring carried out by the previous owners had canceled most of the decorative details typical of Milanese buildings of the end '800. The new project involved the restoration and enhancement of such details - doors, windows, stucco decorations on the ceilings, inlaid wood floors - and the functional reorganization of the spaces in order to meet the needs of the young owners who wanted an apartment suitable for accommodate many guests. While maintaining the typical decorative features of the building , the typical very fragmented internal layout of milanese apartments of this period was significantly changed by establishing clear communication between all the rooms in order to allow an easier and more modern use of space.
