The hotel-like powder room, which is immediately on the right when you enter the home, introduces us to the materials used troughout the house. It has a luxurious large sink sculpted from Calacatta marble that was handpicked in Italy with the client, and is set against a backdrop of Oak paneling. A minimalist black steel frame holds a floating mirror, with indirect daylight coming in from the window behind it. Other black details include the steel soap tray inserted in the sink, a towel shelf below and the taps. A wooden screen subtly divides the kitchen from the living rooms and entryway.
In the extra large kitchen behind it, a large sculptural fireplace is set on a ‘Pietra dei Medici’ natural stone base with black steel details, creating a cosy focal point in the dining area. Oak cabinetry along the wall conceals the ovens, storage and acces to the pantry behind for an uncluttered atmosphere. The large island is cut from slabs of Calacatta marble, with black steel detail adding a graphic touch. Behind the island, an additional countertop in marble houses the sink and the cooktop, with a minimalist white plastered volume above to cover the exhaust.
Large windows open up to the garden and fill the kitchen and dining area with sunlight, which makes the extra-long kitchen island the perfect spot for a morning coffee (or afternoon apéro).
