urban chic, italian loft, italian interiors, paola novanoe interior

You know that on Monday I like to start the week by showing you some design from Italy. Well, last week I somehow anticipated this coloumn on Friday, by showing you two beautiful new kitchens that are also a great sample of Made in Italy, as well as modernity and style.

Today I want to show you something else from Italy, two beautiful urban chic Italian interiors I’ve recently seen in Elle Decor Italy that are a great sample of that “urban-chic” style I’ve shown you Friday with my favourite kitchens.

They are both the result of a great interior design restoration projects on two old buildings, an old factory and an ancient warehouses, that the designers have brought to a new life with that Italian Style that characterize our designs.

 1 | Paola Navone interior in Umbria

::

This amazing restoration is located in Umbria and it’s signed by Paola Navone, in a project full of poetical elements and ethnic contaminations.

The interior space was a real challenge: an huge “hole” of 500mq, with maximun height of 9,5 mt, and it has become somehow like an exhibiting space, with many interesting and unusual elements: the handmaden Moroccan tiles, among the wooden flooring, create a “carpet”under the table, which is a giant wooden table maden of Kauri wood, a special one from a forest buried 42,000 years under the peat in New Zealand.
It’s very interesting to see how the architect was able to create an intimate, cozy and confortable athmosphere in such a big space, do you agree?

Questo incredibile restauro dagli interni ricchi di poesia e di contaminazioni etniche si colloca in Umbria ed è firmato Paola Navone.

Lo spazio interno era una vera e propria sfida: un enorme buco di 500 mq, con altezza massima 9,5 mq, da rendere accogliente e vivibile per una coppia…e non solo, la progettista l’ha trasformato quasi in uno spazio espositivo ricco di elementi inusuali ed inaspettati. Ad esempio le piastrelle sui toni del grigio fatte a mano in Marocco intagliate nel pavimento in legno, quasi a formare un tappeto sotto il tavolo, elemento enorme di arredo fatto di un legno davvero particolare: si tratta infatti di legno di Kauri, proveniente da una foresta seppellita da 42.000 anni in Nuova Zelanda… Ed è davvero interessante vedere come la progettista sia riuscita a creare uno spazio accogliente ed intimo pur in un ambiente così grande, che rischiava invece di risultare “freddo” ed inadatto per viverci.

2 | old factory in Biella

 ::

This is the house of the architect Davide Volpe and his family in Biella, and it’s located inside a portion of an old disused factory, with a very singular plan.

The interior space indeed has an irregula shape: in fact, the perimeter couldn’t be changed and the plan had a strange shape, in a big space with a very horizontal development. This gave the architect the chance to develop the long hallway (60 meters!) as an arcade to filter interior and garden, and an amazing long bookcase (50 meters!) created with iron and old axes from construction site.
To complete this exceptional interior space, some Italian design furniture pieces, both from Italy and outside Italy, as a B&B modular couch by Citterio and a Seventies Danish lamp.

ita_ Questa è la casa dell’architetto Davide Volpe e della sua famiglia a Biella, e si colloca all’interno di una porzione di una fabbrica dismessa dallo sviluppo planimetrico molto singolare.
Infatti lo spazio interno era molto difficile da progettare: il perimetro ovviamente non poteva essere modificato e la pinta aveva una forma molto strana, con un grande spazio ma dal forte sviluppo orizzontale. Questo ha dato all’architetto l’occasioen di creare un lungo corridoio 860 metri) e trattarlo come una colonnata di filtro tra l’interno e il giardino esterno, onchè lno spazio per inventarsi una lunghissima libreria fatta completamente in ferro e con assi di recupero dal cantiere.
A completamento di questo eccezionale contenitore, vari elementi di arredo di design sia italiani che non, come ad esempio un divano componibile firmato B&B di Citterio e una lampada olandese anni Settanta..
