Fisherman Apartment by Gosplan

Fisherman Apartment is a small flat renovated by Gosplan, an Italian architecture and design studio founded in Genoa by Federico Bellegoni, Nicola Lunardi, Veronica Rusca and Lorenzo Trompetto.

From the architect: Boccadasse is a small fishermen harbour in Genoa that inspired many poets and singers with its narrow streets and its beautiful little beach. The tiny flat we refurbished is a typical Genoese “tower house” on four floors, with narrow and steep stairs, whose surface of just 35 square meters is covered by a gambrel roof.

The owner’s request was to have more storage spaces as possible, a kitchen with a pantry, a work station, a double room, a comfortable living room with a second bed and a play-relax space for a kid.

With a very limited budget, our answer to these requests was a tailored apartment where all wooden furniture were custom made and realized by carpenters. A double high space connects the main room (3×6 meters), hosting the kitchen and the living room, with the upstairs bedroom. A pulley moves up and down a desk, allowing to reach the white net suspended on the empty space, while the bed headboard hides a spacious closet.
