Michele De Lucchi & Produzione Privata joined ideas to design this colorful Milan apartment, located in a traditional old dwelling within the city. The cozy home is located on the third floor of the building, overlooking a peaceful inner courtyard. Several important features were preserved: “The original hardwood beams and planks have been recovered from the ceiling; the floors were completely redone with the traditional wooden slats; the bathroom was enhanced with a coating of limestone beige stone that expanded the perception of space and finally a recessed shower was custom designed and made to Michele‚Äôs specifications, also in limestone”, explained the project developers.

Designer elements are spread throughout, adding up to the high level of personality this place exudes: “The living room features a modular kitchen, a new concept of Veneta Cucine designed by De Lucchi, and a relaxation area with reissued out of production furniture such as the Ulysses chair of Moroso. The majority of the furniture and a suggestive lighting stems from Produzione Privata and completes the space by giving the apartment a warm and welcoming feeling.” We love the stylish and unobtrusive manner in which the designer integrated contemporary elements within the traditional “frames” of this house.
