The apartment is a penthouse in an old building facing Piazza della Libertà in the beautiful city of Bassano del Grappa. The explicit request of the client was to keep the unity of the wide space unchanged, complemented by the big wooden roof structures.

A large piece of furniture occupies this space realizing a sort of mezzanine, housing a bedroom and other service spaces without interrupting the visual continuum of the evocative views. Finally, the dining room opens up toward a huge two-level terrazza enriched by a garden.

    Fantastic, nice details like the steel staircase and that slight undercut at the bottom of the new walls to give them a levitating feeling.

    The penthouse is … a penthouse. It’s located at the top of an historic building in the city centre of Bassano. The exterior is almost untouched, that’s why we decided not to show it. Thank for your comments: we appreciate them, each of them.
