This contemporary residence designed by Takane Ezoe and Modourbano sits in Sant’Ambrogio, Milan, Italy. The house includes lots of open space, but it uses such warm colors that it is cozy and welcoming.
This residence is mainly geared towards artists. The studio, the room which is expected to be used most, uses large windows that allow for lots of natural light. Since many artists work late into the night, it also provides well balanced interior lighting from the ceiling. The interior designers used a relatively neutral palette of colors so anybody working in the residence would not get distracted. There is a multitude of open spaces that offer the ability to hold meetings with employees, collaborators, or clients. A gallery/exhibition space is placed near the studio so the artist can store their works of art.
Majority of the living spaces were intentionally left open so the residents are not constrained by the furniture already put in place. The house is mostly dominated by the kitchen area, which provides an area for the resident or residents to cook meals for themselves or for parties. A master bedroom located on the mezzanine level offers a relaxing and extremely welcoming atmosphere. The master bathroom includes a variety of materials including stone and wood because the designers were heavily influenced by Japanese Culture.
