Located in Montecampione, Italy, MC2 is an impressive mountain apartment from the 1970s that had never been renovated. Young Milanese family of four challenged Offstage, the designer, to unravel the compositional knots posed by the original distribution of the two-level unit.
The main objective was to provide the family with a clear and orderly definition. By moving the staircase, placing it in adherence to the kitchen block, a new access to the sleeping area was created, allowing the expansion of the living area. Offstage then applied its own formal language, made of counterpoints, dissonances and references to the mountain context, to this intervention of a compositional nature. Using the chestnut parquet of the lower floor and the shaved carpet of the upper floor, connected by the staircase made of alder wood and forest green lacquer, the team was able to create a modern and cozy mountain apartment.
