Paxton interior apartment
Modena Back to the portfolio


The loft design is inspired by the “RISE” trend, which is rep­resented by the blend of two opposite schools of thought of industrial products and the school of the craftsmen’s work.

Technology is a carrier of in­novation by enhancing the dis­tinctive imperfection of mate­rial that becomes the feature of the trend. Strong textures underline paths within the envi­ronment of the room. The floor serves as coating and furnish­ing element at the same time.

The post-industrial atmosphere dictated by metal tonalities of corten and copper ceramics is completely amalgamated with design style of the loft. The space is conceived as an open space divided into three por­tions: Entrance, living area and the dining corner. The first is represented by the entrance that introduces the visitor/cus­tomer into the loft and then car­ries him/her to the second zone, the living one. The covering’s wall and floor furnish a prominent part of the space and the use of the ceramic is made carefully to design a linear guide to drive the visitor/customer in it. The third part is represented by the dining corner where the linear guide of the pavement become covering wall involving the dinn­ing corner into the living space but preserving the seclude area.
