Decor reinvents space in a designer project in Lugano
Autumn. The light, soft and warm, is perfect for the atmosphere carefully created for this home in Switzerland. It is located on the top floor of a very recent building, on the shores of Lake Lugano. The supporting structure in concrete, which occupies the two stairwells and offers freedom from pillars and supporting walls, gives the breath of an open plan. In this environment, Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci, DimoreStudio, have come up with a design that is faithful to their style, but evolves it within a new context. “The encounter with a different reality was very stimulating. The bare essentiality of the rooms meant that space had to be invented”, the two explain. While the colours of water are the chromatic leitmotif for the surfaces, the palette is enlivened with flashes of yellow and orange, of pink and purple. “We love finding unusual shades and offering bold combinations”, continues Moran. The style exercise is toned down in the bedrooms, where the hues invite you to rest: a pink- veined taupe grey decorates the bedroom walls. From one side to the other, the windows open up onto the landscape. Until the lake vanishes behind a curtain of blue satin.
