Located within a post-war building in the heart of Milan, this penthouse recently refurbished by local practice Mario Mazzer Architects features stunning views on the spires of the Duomo, and the towers of Castello Sforzesco.

Outside there is the historical city, his urban fabric of houses spaced out from little courtyards. Inside, instead, is discovered a contemporary interior design, dominated from pure lines and little chromatic details.


The project by Mario Mazzer Architects for this penthouse starts from the reconsideration of two unit, connected in order to create a new home with an elegant and balanced atmosphere. The wide living zone, that occupies the space previously dedicated to the balcony, stands as the center of the house “life”: kitchen, dining room, living room are part of the same environment, articulted by elements and materials that indicate the different uses.


The white walls and ceilings contrast with leather panels, with metallic inserts or wood boiseries for a sophisticated and rational effect. All the furniture elements were custom made by Mario Mazzer Architects exclusively for this project: the only no-customized objects used to furnish the interior are of historical design companies, such as the Zanotta stools in the kitchen, the Alma Design chairs in the dining room, the Flos lamp, and the Bonaldo sofa in the living room.
