The relationship with the context and the sequence of the three stacked floors relies on a sort of continuous architectural ribbon that reinterprets the flavor of the Mediterranean home, developing, bending to form rooms and the roof, outdoor zones raised from the meadow like platforms, porticos and overhangs, balconies and terraces. White facade of the building with substantial fragments of glazing looks very fresh and modern, as well as interior design features minimalist style and clear lines.

Attic apartment is the rather old building located in Northern Italy. It was built in 1910. So much has been done by Studio Damilano architects to change the look of this old apartment room. But they changed it without changing the structure of existing building. The apartment has lots of unusual angles and it influences the design concept much. The 240 sq m living space is divided into the two bedrooms, living room, two bathrooms and kitchen. Every single room impresses by the sophisticated design. The sleeping area is designed as an independent unit. The bed and bath, separated by a glass wall, create two areas to relax. Part of empty space can be put a classical musical instrument and will add more modern and comfortable atmosphere. The architects managed to create an attic apartment space that embraces the oddness of the shape of the interior.
