Architect Luca Compri Combined Wood and Iron to Modernize a 1960s Apartment

Architects: Luca Compri Architects
Project: Wood and Iron apartments
Location: Varese, Italy
Area: 123.0 sqm

The project is a renovation work which has completely changed the distribution and the interior space of a 120 sm apartment built in the 60’s in Varese. The old partition walls and the long corridor have been demolished to give place to three big boxes inside the apartment; the new volumes, which contain the two bathrooms, the kitchen and the walk-in-closet, enlarge the space and define the rooms, leaving freedom of movement across the space and new perspectives.
