“Iron house” is how Filippo Bombace, associate architect, called the Roman flat, designed for a young couple, and a child as well now, who chose to renovate their home thoroughly and steadfastly with a passionate approach. An Italian walnut parquet all over the flat warms up the scenario otherwise arranged on the exclusive use of black and white; there is only one chromatic deviation, the red painted metal frame of the canopy bed in the owners’ suite. Sliding and pivoting partitions in white lacquered wood with horizontal glass strips, still playing with the white and grey shades, conceal at the right moment access to sleeping rooms or kitchen. Whereas in the bathrooms the sink areas feature the warmth of white Corian: in the guest bathroom with a large industrial supply bowl, in the owners’ bathroom instead with a large double sink designed by Studio Bombace. Gessi fully equipped the kitchen and the bathrooms with mixers and fittings; then Ceramica Flaminia, Biticino, Minotti, Binova, Makro furnishings and Kreon lighting, with specially designed handcrafted furnishings for the TV wall reclaiming the horizontal strips theme but most of all the living room is furnished with a large and innovative dining table, in Italian walnut, extendable with an exclusive specifically designed mechanism.
