The place, characterized by very high ceilings and a system of lowered beams that evoke the systems of movement of the scenic towers, provide the suggestion of the theatre which, together with the love of the owners for the arts, has become the starting point for the development of the project.
In a context where the apartment becomes the theatre and the inhabitants the actors, the project provided the sets by inserting in the spaces furnishings and architectural elements different in shape, materials, finishes and colours.
A semicircular column with a white marble heart, an antique pink pleated volume, a sage green wall furniture, a canary yellow zigzag wall and a large semicircular mirror divide the rooms creating an alternation of colours, shapes and visual and tactile perceptions.
The result is a dynamic space, in which different views and perspectives follow each other in a balance of materials and colours that contribute to creating a joyful and stimulating atmosphere halfway between the domestic and the contemplative.

Bodà-architects understands the project as a research opportunity, to imagine always different solutions, paying particular attention to the theme of recovery, reuse and improvement of the existing.
The studio develops projects, at different scales, without imposing models or styles. Imagine the context as a contaminable, editable and improved landscape. We are interested in the change and the relationship between memory and novelty.
