The reading corner under the window: In Milan a project by the Atomaa studio

Fresh and contemporary, the project that the architectural firm ATOMAA designed for a young couple gracefully reinvents the traditional bourgeois interior of a elegant Milanese building overlooking a tree-lined avenue.

Flexible and bright spaces, identified through the use of different flooring, they indulge the passions of the educated owners: cinematography, design, music and, above all, books. The reading corner created ad hoc under the window, the armchairs and chaise longues scattered around the living area are real breaks from the fast pace of everyday life.

The solution adopted to divide is very interesting the living room and the study-bedroom for guests: a custom-made furniture, made by the designer-carpenter James Moor, replace the wall with a row of doors and shelves filled with volumes up to the ceiling.

The doors can be opened by joining the two environments, or remain closed by creating a fifth intense yellow that enlivens the spaces and contrasts with the grit floor from the milk-mint frames. The arched passage it is an element that is also found in other parts of the house, giving it a classic flavor.

The kitchen, originally very large, has been reduced in its functional part but connected to a cozy dining room designed as the dining room of the past but modernized with the use of upholstery and transformed into a pretty “box to receive”.

In this home, functionality and aesthetics go hand in hand, therefore the bathroom was not treated as a service area but transformed into a large salle de bains. The passing shower connects the master area to the guest area, joined by antique pink and deep green chosen for the enamels and the matt black taps. Glamorous and contemporary.
