In the heart of Matera, Italy, lies Apartment EP, a contemporary haven designed by Manca Studio in 2016. Its facade, a harmonious blend of traditional materials and modern design, stands out in the historical context of the city.

Stepping Inside: A Contemporary Statement

The entrance sets a minimalist tone, leading to an open living area. Here, natural light floods through large windows, highlighting the clean lines and wooden accents that define the space. The living room, with its understated furniture, offers a glimpse into the refined aesthetic that Manca Studio is known for.

Adjacent, the dining area continues the theme of understated elegance. A sleek table flanked by stylish chairs serves as the centerpiece, while unique lighting fixtures add a modern touch. Art pieces on the walls add character without overwhelming the senses.

The seamless integration of wood and soft textiles creates a calming atmosphere, while the strategic use of glass maintains a sense of openness. The clever placement of lighting ensures that the room is both functional and inviting.

The bathroom reveals a stark contrast to the rest of the apartment. Here, darker tones and stone textures provide a sense of grounding. Modern fixtures, clear glass, and well-placed lighting combine functionality with style, showcasing Manca Studio’s attention to detail.
