The apartment is located in a southern suburb of Milan, the project connects a studio with a terrace on the first floor with a three-room apartment on the ground floor.
The project organizes the space by volumes rather than in plan. This approach will soon discover a need for a mezzanine and leads to a design of an iron footbridge.
Together with the staircase it will become the axis of symmetry of the whole apartment. As a result, the plan and the section seem to be squeezed in the middle like a butterfly shaped pasta.
The spaces, volumes and functions are gently intertwined to enable the flow of light, air and sight. Most of the vertical partitions are glazed.
