As in this private residence, designed by architect Egidio Panzera at the Bosco Verticale in Milan, these values intertwine a dialogue between inside and outside to give life to a domestic oasis in the heart of the Milanese metropolis.

The harmony between the materials used, the reflections between interior and exterior, the customized solutions, and the ability to conceal what should not be manifest, give shape to an apartment sewn, like a tailor-made suit, to the personality of the client.

As the trees characterize the shell of the skyscraper designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti, with Gianandrea Barreca and Giovanni La Varra, so also the fossil branches and leaves trapped in the Forest marble become the protagonists of the interior project. The exterior-interior connection is also created through reflection, used to break down corners and create continuous cross-references between inside and outside.

To furnish the kitchen space, the architect has availed himself of Valcucine’s collaboration, which has created an Artematica linear composition (design by Gabriele Centazzo), among the most iconic of the company, that has been in production since 1988 and has been continuously updated.

The kitchen facade is made entirely of glass, a precious, resistant, and eco-friendly material. The choice of a matte finish and soft colour shades, playing with earthy and whitish tones, creates a mellow mood in syntony with the other areas of the house.

The handle-less solution enhances the clean, uncluttered lines of the design, setting off the finish of the cabinets thanks to uninterrupted front surfaces. The choice of using aluminum for grips and profiles enhances the technical side of the kitchen. The equipped walls create perspective lines that highlight the large, full-height window that offers a glimpse of the outdoors.
