The renovation of a vintage home in Rome
In the Monti district, one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in Rome, Sammarro Architecture Studio changed the face of a vintage home combining contemporary style and period context thanks to skilful design touches.
The house has been entirely redesigned with large openings but respecting the existing architecture of the building. The restored and preserved coffered ceilings contrast with the minimal, total white furnishings while the boiserie in the living room is conceived as a dark element connecting the ceiling and the wooden floor, painted in black and laid out with an Italian herringbone pattern, embracing every space and adding warmth, elegance and refinement to it.
According to the traditional layout, the living area is well separated from the bedrooms through a hall. The kitchen comes with a green space with climbing plants and spices located on the small terrace.
The sleeping area is accessed through a long corridor, which is a typical element of period houses. The master bedroom features a custom-built walk-in closet, while the whole headboard has been finished with resins, just like the furnishing in the master bathroom.
The result of the project is a beautiful Roman vintage home revisited in a contemporary way.
