At the eastern limit of the Appia Antica park, the green lung of Italy’s capital, on the ground floor of a period building, there is the large and elegant apartment, the subject of renovation by the architect Luca Caprioli. One of the key points of the design was to enhance the ceilings while maintaining the right proportions of the rooms and to reorganise the internal distribution of the spaces. The client’s requests for the designer were to make the modern style coexist with the reuse of some furnishings, enhance the lighting technology and design an open space living room. The use of high-quality floor and wall coverings proved to be a winning choice.
The kitchen has been designed as an open space in which the island enriched by high seats and the functional part arranged in line, are in continuity with the living area. For the floor, the LITHOS collection of porcelain stoneware was chosen in the 90x90 cm size and in the MOON variant. In it, the materiality of stone is hybridised with the aesthetics of the rarest marbles, for a unique, refined, exciting project, which develops in a variety of surfaces to look at, touch, feel. Lithos uses the Protect® treatment, ideal in an environment such as the kitchen, thanks to which antibacterial surfaces with great performance are guaranteed, in the name of utmost safety. The same LITHOS, in the STONE variant in the 60x120 cm size, was used on the floor and wall covering of one of the bathrooms.
