Two sisters put me in charge of handling the interior design of their two-family home (a colleague’s project) under construction and its garden. The two homes reflect the sisters’ different personalities and conceive identical volumes as if they were variations on the same theme, moving from the women’s distinct needs, desires and orientation. The second house features chartreuse green paired with other fresh tones, like lavender and a shade of green chosen to brighten the staircase. We designed the children’s bedrooms – which we entrusted to the artist Elisabetta Carron – for both homes, plus the finishings and the bespoke furniture. A notable piece is a table featuring a pierced centre with a vase inserted for flowers, fruit or as a glacette. The table has recently become a limited series item produced by Il Tuo Legno

The gardens flank a shared area between two private spaces and feature an orchard at the entrance and a romantic secret garden with rose varieties.
