Renovating an ’80s home into a contemporary residence that fits the specific needs of a homeowner is a task that is challenging enough. But the founder of Marco Costanzi Architetti was faced with a challenge that is far more unconventional and demanded greater sensitivity.
This sleek sophisticated home was designed by architect along with studio Viraje Arquitectura and its urbane contemporary flair is apparent from the get-go. The façade of the stylish home is shaped by clean well defined straight lines and a pristine white sheen that is noticeable even from a distance. A long narrow entryway leads to the lower level of the house which features the living areas in an open floor plan.
The home plays host to Danzig her husband two daughters and her parents and the design of the new revamped house was completed with the needs of every single member in mind. An open floor plan houses the living room the dining space and the modern kitchen that is neatly tucked away in the corner.
The trend in contemporary interior design is to keep the backdrop of the room as neutral as possible in order to achieve the most striking visual impact. This creates a perfect opportunity for the accent colors to shine through. As a rule the more neutral the room the greater the prominence of the accent hues.
