About Duplex

A Modern Chic Entrance

Upon entering the Duplex, you’re welcomed by an open-plan living area that exudes modern chic sensibilities. The room is a showcase of simplicity and elegance, with a large, comfortable sofa inviting relaxation. Potted plants add a touch of nature, while the abstract art piece on the wall injects vibrancy into the space.

Sophisticated Kitchen and Dining

Transitioning to the kitchen, sleek white countertops contrast beautifully with the warm wooden tones of the breakfast bar stools. The kitchen, functional yet stylish, mirrors the city’s coastal charm with a view that frames the bustling streets of Naples.

Chic and Inviting Bathroom

The bathroom combines practicality with a bold aesthetic. A striking blue basin pops against a textured white backdrop, exemplifying the design’s fusion of color and form—a recurring theme throughout the Duplex.

Tranquil Bedrooms

In the bedroom, the serene ambiance is palpable. Skylights open the room to the sky above Naples, while minimalist decor ensures that the panoramic views remain the focal point. The bedding’s vibrant patterns provide a playful counterpoint to the room’s otherwise muted palette.

The Office with a View

The office space is a testament to the Duplex’s thoughtful design, blending work with the Italian city’s inspiring vistas. Here, form meets function with a spacious desk and comfortable seating, all set against the backdrop of a sun-drenched terrace that beckons one outdoors.

This narrative, centered around the artful blend of modernity and comfort, positions the Duplex as a paragon of chic urban living. Each element of Colandrea Bausano Architetti’s design is a deliberate choice, reflecting not just aesthetic beauty but also the vibrant spirit of Naples itself.
