Easy-care houseplants as an accent in a white interior
This freshly decorated apartment is located in Milan, Italy and was completed by AIM in 2015. The design team should transform an office into a cozy living space. The owners wanted an elegant and flexible interior where their numerous plants could feel comfortable. Easy care houseplants such as areca palms, green lilies and Spathiphyllum plants therefore play the main role in this modern, white interior. The dark wooden floor is the perfect complement and underlines the fresh feeling that prevails in the apartment.
Easy-care houseplants play the main role
The entire floor plan was adapted to the new needs of the room. The apartment was divided into several small areas – living room, kitchen, dining area – which constantly communicate with each other. An iconic element, also called a concrete box, was designed to enclose the living room on three sides. This forms the core of the apartment and the focal point for movement to all other rooms. Taking into account the orientation of the building, this element was planned in such a way that the best of the natural lighting can be used. It also creates the perfect environment for the plants.
Low-maintenance houseplants such as the Areca palm
With this concrete box, the designers have given up the classic concept of the hallway as the dividing line between the living and sleeping areas. Even from the entrance hall, one already gets the impression of an entire room based on the interplay of volumes, full and empty rooms. The outer walls of the box are actually plastered with coarse concrete, which further underlines its leading role in the space. The interior is kept in white resin.
