Porcelanosa Grupo Projects: a complete renovation in a single-family home in Rome

The architect blogger, Patrizia Burato, (Archidipity), has overseen the work carried out on the complete remodelling of a single-family home in Rome. Spread out over an an area of 130m2, the house remodelling project was geared towards placing a study area where the old kitchen once was, and creating a second bathroom with a hidden laundry room, as well as a dressing room in the hallway that leads to the bedrooms.

A cutting-edge transformation

The natural wood Tortona Strada parquet by  L’Antic Colonial gives a warm welcome in the entrance of the house. This is flooring which, goes from the entrance hall all the way to the living room.

The corridor is like a ‘telescope that gets narrower and then it opens towards the living room’, Burato said. It becomes narrower when moving away from the entrance. A feeling which, is enhanced because of having been painted entirely in black, with the ceiling included.

The living room is connected to the kitchen through a sliding glass door which is completely transparent. So, these two rooms, although separated from each other, are joined in visual terms. For the flooring in the kitchen, the Ston-Ker Estocolmo series from Venis in its Natural finish has been installed.

In the bathroom one can find the Ston-Ker Baltimore Gray model, also by Venis which, finds its inspiration from natural stone. Additionally, the sanitaryware from the Arquitect series and the NK Concept taps from Noken Porcelanosa Bathrooms are also included. The basin countertop stands out because of its covering which is made with the Paradise Arrow mosaic by L’Antic Colonial. Together with them, the pieces playing a leading role in this space are the 120cm Modul Basin washbasin and the Arch Double bathtub, both of which are manufactured with the Krion® Solid Surface mineral compact. Materials from the PORCELANOSA Grupo have also been used in the guests’ bathroom.

Patrizia Burato has captured a modern and cutting-edge style, banking on simple clean lines, indirect lighting and volumes made of gypsum boards. A combination of contrasts which is also found in the colour palette which was chosen to paint the walls with, along with highlighting the volumes.
