while keeping the original volumes of a private apartment in florence, filippo carandini has adjusted the existing structure to create a single open space where environments can be separated depending on their use. in order to achieve this amount of functionality, the walls were divided, allowing continuous perspectives to into adjacent areas while maximizing the amount of sunlight that travels from room to room.

the color palette features light, natural tones that enhance the bright ambiance, and work as a neutral base for the dark silhouettes of the decor and the geometrical iron doors. the quantity of furnishings is deliberately kept to a minimum to allow wide passages for the residents and to emphasize the capacity of the volumes. selected pieces, such as the dining table, bookcases, bathroom tiles and solid wood parquet, mix a classic language reinterpreted in a contemporary way, thanks to the treatment of surfaces and use of materials.
