Monte Carlo < Back
The project for a private residence invariably has to take account of the client’s family structure. The house is a kind of exoskeleton in which human relations, even before family ties, develop and find their balance.
The design of this new apartment starts from the specific request for a house that could accommodate parents and children, some from previous relationships.
Everything grew out of the fusion and radical restructuring of three existing apartments in an early 20th century building in the heart of Montecarlo. The first act was the creation of a new staircase, completely independent of the condominium stairs.
We wanted this new internal staircase for the exclusive use of the family to create a clear link between the three levels, though they are aesthetically independent.
The colour of the zebrano goes well with both warm tones and cold, without limiting any subsequent colour choices made by the occupants, in terms of furnishings and accessories. It’s an element that supports but does not preclude the evolution of this home.Almost a metaphor for family relationships.
