Classic tastes and contemporary shapes, along with minimal colors, tend to define the “Modern Classic” category. Architect Marco Fiorillo used all of these in his design for this elegant 80 sq. m. apartment in Naples’ Fuorigrotta quarter.
The property has a large living area that has been deceptively “divided” into two functional spaces: the dining room has an elegant glass table and the living room with a sofa and television, floating on a white “brick” wall that not only breaks the flow of the beige surfaces, but plays an important role in isolating the space.
The lowered ceiling creates interesting plays of light with baffles, recessed lighting and rounded wall profiles. The linear, square furnishing adds a touch of modernity, making for a comfortable yet elegant atmosphere. The living area’s geometry is interrupted by refined, angled glass doors that slide open to reveal the contained yet well-organized kitchen, with ad-hoc cabinetry and stone-look tiling for the backsplash.
There is wood-look flooring throughout the home, tying the various spaces together. The only room with a different kind of flooring is the bathroom. Porcelain tiling meets exposed stones on the walls. The white and natural wood fixtures, from Iperceramica’s “Qubo” collection, help to break up the walls’ varying grey tones.
The large, rectangular master suite has a color palette of whites and beiges, and features the same lowered ceiling with baffles and recessed lighting. The small private bathroom is just on the right of the bedroom, and above it, additional storage was created to maximize the apartment’s space.
