Portuense, a stately apartment in Rome

Constructed by architect Patrizia Burato and featuring collections by Porcelanosa, the interior design of this apartment is a new take on classic style, with natural room schemes combining wood and stone textures with ultra modern furnishings and velvety textiles.

Featuring a classic interior design style combining hardwood furnishings with velvety textiles and glass pendant lighting, Portuense (Rome) is the perfect representation of the way new design coexists with - and complements - the city's historic past.

Classicism revamped, in wood and stone

The work of architect Patrizia Burato, this open-plan 150-square metre apartment joins the kitchen to the dining room with black framed sliding doors and PAR-KER® ceramic wood flooring by Porcelanosa throughout the property.

The continuous design creates the perfect backdrop to highlight the uniqueness of each room and order of the various elements, bringing construction materials to the fore of the décor. This also occurs in the three bathrooms, where the contrasting textures of wood (PAR-KER®) and stone result in a fresh take on classic style, all complemented by Butech decorative profiles (Pro-mate 5 Chrome profile), adding interest to the corners.

The master bathroom blends ceramic parquet with stone inspired wall tiles by Porcelanosa, Round taps and an Arquitect toilet by Noken, also chosen for the other bathrooms.

The second bathroom features a more natural aesthetic, with ceramic parquet flooring by PAR-KER® and Image wall tiles. These tiles reproduce the texture and sheen of stone, and combine beautifully with the Noken Lounge mirror and Unique oval washbasin by KRION® Solid, whose high resistance to knocks, zero porosity and bacteriostatic properties work to improve the health profile of the space. As recommended by Porcelanosa, to ensure the perfect placement of each tile, they were installed using grout and materials by Butech, with an innovative composition that results in an unlimited surface.

The third bathroom has a distinctly Nordic feel, with grey and brown hues to balance the Soleil bath by Noken, in turn framed by Porcelanosa's Sochi Blanco collection. This surface echoes the shine of onyx, and is further accented by L'ac geometric wall tiles in shades of brown, gold and grey running horizontally through the middle of the surface and breaking with the space's uniform colour scheme.
