An Exclusive Apartment in Milan by Anice Archittetura

In the historic Bocconi district of Milan, Anice Architettura developed the renovation project of a young lawyer’s apartment – a project with a vintage and contemporary style, in line with the Client’s passion for modernism.

The interior layout enhances the living area with a large lounge and a kitchen that opens to the living room. To separate the living room from the kitchen, we opted for two sliding doors with a “now-you-see-it-now-you-don’t” effect which, by functionally dividing the two areas, make it possible to connect the spaces “on demand”, according to the needs of the moment.

In line with this philosophy, we designed two glass and aluminium sliding doors that bring a vintage charm to the project, and carefully blended in decorative skirting, flush doors, gold knobs and handles, and a concealed ventilation system with aesthetically pleasing vents.

The kitchen style is essentially modern: the contemporary allure of the room is emphasised by the iconic chrome-plated Penta Light lamp GLOW which, contrasting with the rustic table in rough oak, highlights the Calligaris “Parisienne” polycarbonate chairs with transparent colours and pop lines.

In the living room, Pholc Kandisky 30 pendant lamps are suspended above the table in a geometric play.
The result is a refined style contaminated by heterogeneous elements, in an uninterrupted journey through different periods.

A further example is the Hungarian parquet, laid lengthwise in a herringbone pattern in the corridor and under the lovely bow-window.

The Vanity Table, designed and made by Anice Architettura, creates an “Old Hollywood atmosphere”. This interior design piece brings an elegant and functional touch to the hall. Having a dedicated vanity table with storage drawers and a mirror is useful to keep items organised, relax and indulge in the self-care ritual. The result is a warm environment with a personal vintage touch – like the 50s bookcase or the Vitra Eames House Bird, a memento of the homeowner – in a play of cross-references between materials, styles and ages.

Materials are key when designing a luxury bathroom with a vintage flair. Tactile finishes pleasing to the senses add a visual element of style to a vintage scheme that places comfort over style. In the master bathroom, large format tiles with a 3D floral texture and soft colours contrast with the black of faucets and accessories.

In the smaller bathroom, the monolith wash basin carved out from a single block of stone combines with full-height ceramic tiling to create a perfect match with the wood flooring. In the third bathroom, walls feature the same ceramic tiles in a warm earthy colour; the floor, bathtub and washbasin all have the same texture, while a groove in the ceiling harbours a LED lamp that delicately reflects light on the wall. The vintage style, the materials and a natural colour palette combine to give life to an original, welcoming and functional environment.

The outcome is a home with a timeless charm and unique character, reflecting the owner’s identity in a delicate balance between classic and modern styles.
