About Casa GR
Reviving Historical Charm
A captivating early 20th-century building once held a spacious apartment with uniquely proportioned rooms. Architects took on the challenge, carefully connecting rooms and repurposing spaces. They skillfully blended old furnishings and finishes with new textures and materials, enhancing every corner.
The transformation began with the entrance, transforming it into a cozy home library. Meanwhile, kitchen walls opened up to the corridor and living room, fostering open, airy connections. Central to family life, a wooden structure now elegantly frames these new passageways, seamlessly uniting the spaces.
A Palette of Textures and Colors
Next, designers introduced a striking brick hue to denote transitional areas, ensuring privacy with a pivot door for the bedrooms. In the living area, they paired reclaimed parquet with sleek gray terrazzo (terrazzo floors), striking a balance between old and new. The bedrooms and bathrooms contrast with floral wallpapers and chic black terrazzo floors, respectively.
Blending Vintage and Modern
Finally, a curated mix of vintage and contemporary lamps and furniture infused the apartment with warmth. This careful selection created an ambiance that is both authentic and sophisticated, inviting residents and guests into a space that feels like home, yet is steeped in history and elegance.
