JUNE 2018 | DESIGN FOR LIVING

Park Associati’s relationship with houses is an interesting one, mostly when it is understood as applying an architectural vision to a domestic and intimate space. Whether dealing with the dimension of urban living or the refurbishment of a country cottage, the studio’s research and design criteria stem from the same assumptions of precision and functionality that characterise larger scale projects.

LIVING ART OVERLOOKING THE PARK

A refurbishment intervention which aims at finding a balance between pre-existing spaces and dynamics and contemporary living. In a 420 sqm apartment where the features of an early 20th century building in the historic area of ​​Milan overlooking Parco Sempione needed to be maintained, Park Associati designs an elegant interior, yet featuring plenty of unusual and daring details, with custom-made decorative feature choices, colour accents, and a dialogue between design and contemporary art.

A RADICAL REFURBISHMENT BY REVISITING ITALIAN DESIGN’S CLASSICS

The refurbishing of an apartment in a building dating back to the 1950s in the centre of Milan involves a complete redefinition of the entire floor’s layout. The project is characterised by the choice of materials and their use: all the furniture is designed and built to measure, using materials such as ceramics, metal and wood – reinterpreting the architectural language in a contemporary way, as a tribute to the great masters of Modern Italian design.

INNOVATIVE WAYS TO RETHINK A COUNTRY HOUSE

A typical rural house of the countryside around Piacenza transformed into a holiday home for a large family, without radically altering its nature. The project focuses on the interiors’ horizontal and vertical connections, with an ever-changing interpretation of the staircase theme. Insulation, ventilation and heating have been redesigned in an innovative way that respects the vernacular forms of the building, thus making this project a symbolic example of architectural restoration. So much so that it was recently chosen by a famous Italian food brand as the core of their new adv campaign.
