Located in the historical Liberta neighbourhood of Palermo, Sicily, G Residence is a modern apartment designed by Alva Architetti in 2022.
The project’s specific interventions allowed for the connection of the living room and kitchen through a monochrome passage that seems dug out from the wall. Opposite to the idea of the digging, the long sides of the living room retain the purity of fine-grained plastered surfaces. The short sides, on one hand, are lined and defined by furniture serving the dining table, on the other, by a bench in Guatemala marble and a sliding wood paneling. Neutral tones and cool colours, such as grey and white, are counterbalanced by wood of the flooring and the fixed furnitures, interrupted only by the green of the Guatemala marble.

The light-filled atriums, courtyards, terraces, and swimming pool easily accessed from the kitchen and living room, further enhance the sense of isolation and privacy.

Introducing Anna Maria Sokolowska Interior Design’s latest project, “The Architect’s Private House“. Located in Rumia, Poland, this conversion and extension of a farm building from 1940 is an oasis of peace and tranquility, surrounded by greenery and old fruit trees.
Anna Maria designed the interiors to be simple, minimalist and yet give a sense of warmth and a calming feeling. Natural wood repainted white and green colour accents make the property more appealing. The interior features a reinforced concrete ceiling, natural oak wood on the floor, open prefabricated truss in the upstairs bedrooms, and a combination of white, grey, black and natural oak wood. Additionally, the house has an open area with a seating area, dining area and open kitchen, a pantry, a utility locker, and a staircase with double the height. The bedroom has a continental bed, suspended bedside tables, wardrobe with two colour finishes, and an internal private bathroom with a bath and two sinks. This project was a challenge by itself, but Anna Maria managed it as an architect, investor, manager and interior designer.
