Italian architect Carola Vannini has sent us photos of the Celio Apartment located close to the Colosseo area in Rome, Italy.

The 2,580 square foot luxurious apartment has been renovated by the architect and reorganized through a complete and detailed design project for a total budget of €250.000.

Celio Apartment by Carola Vannini:

“The client’s main need of opening the space toward the outside landscape, generated a design characterized by light and airy rooms.

Several windows have been reopened, and the interior distribution has been changed in order to create multiple perspectives. Main space of the day area is the kitchen volume, which is in direct relation with both, the entrance and the living room. It is designed as an isolated volume, separated from ceiling and floor, through continue led lights. Two sliding white glass doors allow to open and close the kitchen, depending on the user’s needs.

The living room has a minimal flair, and its furniture (designed by the architect) creates a balance with the interior architecture. The lighting system has been carefully studied in order to emphasize perspectives and space depth. A direct relation with the exterior area is underlined by the wooden floor that extends from the interior space into the balcony. The black doors and windows frames, create a painting-like effect by framing the surrounding natural landscape.

The kitchen has a sculptural valence, which partially hides its real function. Nevertheless, practical needs are not underestimated thanks to the creation of big cabinets and a white Corian kitchen island (ideal for quick meals and as a work top).
