The home refurbished by Bevilacqua Architects is located in a 1950’s modernist building and enjoys breathtaking views of Villa Balestra, perhaps the most beautiful part of the exclusive Parioli neighbourhood. The amazing landscape inspired the idea of reflecting the view from the two large windows into the living room with a long wall made of tall smoky glass sliding panels, thus creating a kaleidoscopic effect between the interior and exterior. The geometric lines of the large sliding panels in brass and mirror stand out with their transparencies and reflections and act as a trait d’union between the classical style of the house, characterized by Italian walnut parquet floors and stucco wall decorations, and modernity. The apartment is designed as a sequence of continuous spaces and develops longitudinally along a corridor that connects terraces at both ends of the home: one adjacent to the living area that is enveloped by soft white curtains, and the second in the sleeping area with an internal and more intimate view. The lavatories and the walk-in closet are located in the less luminous part of the apartment. The three bathrooms are covered in marquinia black marble, in contrast with the rest of the home. Gold is the predominant colour, reiterated and amplified by various elements such as the smoked mirrors, the two tall brass pivot doors that divide the bedrooms from the living room when necessary and the Scipioni appliques, designed by the studio, which are inspired by the Italian design of Fontana Arte and Gio Ponti.
