About Free Garbatella

A Modern Oasis in the Heart of Rome

Free Garbatella, designed by Fabrizio Forniti in 2023, stands as a masterpiece of modern apartment renovation in the historic Garbatella district of Rome, Italy. Forniti’s vision transformed the space, beginning with a detailed analysis of the site’s architecture, to capture the essence and soul of the area. The project turned into a labor of love, reflecting the deep affection the owners have for their future home.

The Power of Color and Space

Upon entering the apartment, one is greeted by a spacious and bright open space that combines the living room and kitchen, along with a dining area. A creatively designed wooden slat panel hides the building’s utilities while serving as a light, visual separation between the living and dining areas. The use of a deep blue night color on wood moldings and a wall extending towards the sleeping quarters adds elegance.

A Personal Touch Through Design

In this apartment, color plays a pivotal role. The bathrooms showcase distinctive personalities – one adorned with ochre yellow floors and geometric patterns, and another with ash gray tiles accented by textured surfaces. The master bedroom is defined by a bold red wall that acts both as a headboard and a divider for the walk-in closet behind it.

The thoughtful interior layout, the strategic use of color, and the selection of unique gres tile finishes lend this apartment a distinctly personal and modern flavor. Fabrizio Forniti’s Free Garbatella project stands as a testament to how contemporary design can intertwine with personal taste to create a living space that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
