The architect’s home 2

Posted on Wed, 4 Jul 2012 by midcenturyjo

Still continuing the relationship that the architect has with their home space. In the previous post it was b-arch’s Alessandro Capellaro. Now it is his colleague and co-founder at b-arch Sabrina Bignami’s personal space. Casa Orlandi, a late-18th century palazzo was underwent a minimalist restoration acknowledging its history and the passage of time. Inserted into this time capsule is a modern home of contemporary design classics and found objects. It is as if the old house is a stage and the contents a set on which to play out the owner’s life. Whatever it is, it is a fabulous juxtaposition of old beauty and cool new style.

That kitchen! Gorgeous! I don't believe that mirror could stay by the stove when cooking but whatevs, it looks great. And the living room needs some serious messing up to get rid of that cold look, but maybe I'm just envious of palazzo life…

Been schmoozing with that kitchen for a fair while now. 's good to see the rest of the house.

So often the attempt to introduce modern furnishings to ancient environs goes horribly wrong. Not this time!
