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.
