Tucked down a little street, near Campo de’ Fiori one of the most vibrant squares in Rome, is this apartment, a few steps from a pretty market, shops and chill-out bars, in an area in the centre of Rome where you can still find artisans and Romans sitting in bars sipping spritz. When designing this house, the architects and owners Edoardo Rosati and Olimpia Stacchi of Architects at Work Studio wanted to achieve an informal look and there is no doubt they succeeded.
The living space is open and light but visually divided into areas of use by the concrete structure, by the beams and pillars that also serve as a support for the kitchen counter panels and dining table. There are numerous solutions and details utilised by the two architects that make this house timeless and trendy at the same time: the 2 different sizes of wooden floor boards, the custom designed skirting boards, kitchen and the glass and steel suspended table, the wardrobe, just to quote a few. A well measured mix of vintage and non vintage furniture make the house personal without overdoing it.
The neutral colors of the walls give continuity to the space and rooms and they enhance elements like the Scandinavian style bed, the collection of snapshots, the nurse glass showcase in the living room where they keep all their memorabilia of their trips.
The fascinating view completes this apartment, a nest of the creativity and life together of this young couple.
