This small apartment (approximately 65 sq m)is located in Turku, Southern Finland. Like other typical apartment, too many walls and doors blocked the spaces and the natural light. Architect Maurizio Giovannoni first task was letting the light flow in and creating a modern living apartment design.
The partial demolition of walls was a natural consequence, along with reversing the location of bedroom and living room so that the beautiful view of historical site of Turku can be seen from the living space. The interior concept of this small apartment is a blend of cultures. The floor is covered with parquet of white ash solid wood, the shelves are birch and the kitchen table is also in birch but colored with heat. Wood is a omnipresent element in this apartment design as it constantly is for Finnish people, but the real attention is catalyzed by the nature theme wallpaper, carrying colours and a typical Mediterranean "courage". The furniture itself is a mix of the two cultures and of past and present: the grandmother's armchair is a piece of Finnish vintage from the sixties as is the red floor lamp. The arc framing the wallpaper is the famous Twiggy by Foscarini and the suspended lamps are Italian as well. ANd everything fits together in perfect harmony!
