Micro-living in continuous transformation: "everything moves and nothing stays still"

An optimized service area frees up space and access to natural light sources for the main spaces, which are fitted with movable wooden walls and fabric partitions, allowing the micro-living to be transformed according to the needs of the moment

The main idea of Atomaa's project for the renovation of this apartment in Milan, which was defined by the architects as "micro-living" because of its small size, was to move the bathroom from its previous position and place it close to the perimeter wall, away from the natural light of the windows

This made it possible to bring together the fixed elements needed for services, such as storage furniture, wardrobe, washing machine and entrance, along the perimeter wall, in a sort of thickening of that wall. The result was that the main living spaces were placed close to the light sources, in a continuous open and free space

The sequence of the three different rooms, each with a window as a source of natural light, can be divided and organized differently through the movement of wood panels and curtains. All the furniture has been made to measure (kitchen and shelves), the wooden panels and doors are made of birch plywood, treated with transparent polyurethane varnish

From the point of view of colors and finishes, the apartment is characterized by a very narrow range of colors, consisting of white, light gray, polished steel and several examples of natural wood. The walls, left in exposed brick, are painted in light gray from the floor to a height of 215 cm, then in a white glazed paint up to the ceiling
