House in the Gulf of Trieste


The interior renovation of a seventies building constructed on the mountain side of the Trieste coast road uses a contemporary language to tackle the constraints placed on the elevations by the landscape. The clients’ request was to create a home with large, welcoming spaces that would suit family life as well as socialising and entertaining. In such an incredible setting, it was inevitable that the dominant feature would be the natural light, which was established right from the start as a key design theme, along with the concept of the fluidity and visual continuity of the spaces, aided by the large sizes of the rooms.

Designed as a freestanding object, the open staircase is constructed from the same bleached oak as the floor, with its geometry highlighted in stainless steel, a contemporary and elegant material used to pick out several details.

The brightness of the light is accentuated by the white surfaces of the walls and custom furniture, and by the mirrored surfaces which contribute intriguing effects of light and reflection to the spaces.
