House on Track: Transforming a 19th Century Apartment in Rome

Vibrant open-concept space with exposed brick ceiling, modern kitchen, and eclectic decor.

In the vibrant heart of Rome’s Esquilino district, a 95 m2 apartment on the second floor of a late 19th-century building has undergone a transformative design by Studio Tamat. Aptly named “House on Track,” this project was a 360-degree design exercise, as the architects, Matteo Soddu and Sergio Marras, were also the clients.

Blending the domestic dimension with captivating architecture, this apartment showcases a stunning interplay of neutral tones, vintage furnishings, and bold color accents, creating a harmonious living space that seamlessly integrates with the eclectic character of its vibrant Roman neighborhood.
