Grey Oak Flooring in Monaco Residence

31st Oct 2011 @ 11:49

The Milan based studio Federic Delrosso Architects has designed the interior of this 20th century residence in Monaco. One of the main aims of the project was to accommodate and be suitable for a complete family. The residence is made up of three aesthetically independent apartments which are connected through a new staircase.

The first floor of the apartment is  “the most crowded” and therefore devoted to the children. The second floor, being “more intimate and compact, is for the parents whereas the third is designed for living together and hospitality with the living room and kitchen.

This division of space has resulted in a home with a reverse vertical development with the entrance on the top third floor where the living room is situated.

The Monaco residence makes strong use of zebrano wood which is used for the furniture, door and more. The flooring that has been used is grey oak which has a distinctive texture which creates a very natural and warm ambiance. The flooring manages “to soften the rationally orthogonal spaces” and “works very well for ‘coloring’ at certain points the icy white of the walls”.
