Three apartments in Florence offer travellers and artists a home away from home, a co-living and studio working space. Five metre ceilings with large windows; designed specifically for relaxation ideal space(s) in which to unwind. Numeroventi is a guesthouse and a exhibition space. Numeroventi’s mission is to be an inventive environment which fosters and inspires the creative exchange between contemporary and digital art & design.
While working on the interiors we realised that the light that filled the majestic rooms with presence and mood had to be the key in the design. We wanted the guests to feel at home in the spaces, but without clutter.
Clean spaces to relax in, with a modern touch to rooms that are centuries old. We wanted our guests to feel a part of the historical building in the centre of Florence, with its frescos on the ceilings, without the heavyness most old buildings have. Vintage furniture was found from Italy, Spain, France and the UK.
In the end we have three apartments, relaxed and comfortable, full of feeling and warmth. Quiet spaces to escape the heat and noise of the city, rooms which our guests would want to spend time in.
