The apartment is located on the top floor of a 1970s residential complex, and from here there is an enviable view: La Cala with the urban fabric of the historic center, the Fish Market, the splendid ruins of the Castello a Mare, and finally the Port.

Right from the start it was clear how the external landscape had to condition the project and how the organization of spaces would revolve around the windows that frame it.

The new partitions were limited to a minimum, creating a large living room where a wooden container volume is inserted in an axial position that, without shielding the view but orienting it, divides the space into two macro-zones and at the same time performs different functions: on one side, at the entrance, it is a wardrobe while on the other it is a real area for “smartworking,” while on one of the two short sides it serves as a TV cabinet serving the living room.

The change of flooring between wood and stoneware distinguishes the kitchen from the rest of the living area, here is the peninsula completely covered in black fenix and a large oak storage wall that frames the large windows overlooking the landscape, on the largest is placed the dining area.

The bathrooms act as a filter for the sleeping area, which is accessed through custom-made doors. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, closet and custom-made bed make up a single system and enjoys the most beautiful view of Castello a Mare.
