Even when space may be at a premium and somewhat limited, creativity and design need not be.
Take for example this wonderful renovation of an Italian attic. Built in 1910, its previous guise was little more than a dusty storage area full of boxes of “memorabilia”, and no doubt some rodents too.
Now, it’s a gleaming testament to the best of modern design. Studio Damilano have created a home that is minimalist yet cosy, and have cleverly utilised the existing structure – beams, walls, odd angles et al – so what could have been cumbersome intrusions are instead wonderful design elements integrated seamlessly with the new modernist life of the attic.
For some basic facts and figures of the loft, it is 240 square meters, and there’s a kitchen, two bedrooms, living room and two modern bathrooms.
