Sanremo Penthouse Renovation
PENTHOUSE IN SANREMO | A TERRACE ON THE SEA
We always say that, in addition to the families who live in the houses, it is the places that inspire our work. It is the unique atmospheres that can be breathed in territories like Sanremo, it is the magic of a place like this, situated a stone's throw from the sea, that brings us to develop an original, almost tailor-made, certainly unique project.
We have been entrusted with an attic in the Sanremo area, the top floor of a 1960s building like so many can be seen on the Italian coasts. Starting from this already existing building, we gave new life to an apartment that no longer met the needs of the owners and did not even reflect the marine setting. By introducing new materials, more suited to a beach house, we were able to bring out the relaxing and elegant character of this house.
NEW NEEDS FOR A NEW LIFE | RENOVATION WITH CONSTRUCTION OF A THIRD ROOM
The renovation of this house was born from a radical change in the life of the owners: they decided to move from Milan to the beach house in Sanremo, choosing a place that can offer a high quality life and allows you to spend more time in contact with nature, away from the frenetic pace of city life to which they are used to.
To make this change possible, however, it was necessary to adapt the house to new needs: in fact, they needed a third room that acted as a study, thus allowing the owners to work remotely in complete tranquility, and as the guest room, to be used for some visiting Milanese friend.
We at Capponi GC have ventured into a partial renovation, obtaining this third space and, above all, reselling all the materials of the house to give it the right marine flavor. The house develops on the top floor of the building for 145 square meters, with another 190 square meters of terrace. It is a generously sized penthouse, whose strong point is certainly the external part, which allows you to enjoy the sun and the temperate climate of Sanremo throughout the summer. Our effort was therefore to interpret the possibilities of this house in the best possible way, working on the partial renovation and then dedicating ourselves to the study of bespoke furniture, also choosing accessories and objects, ranging between the high-end brands of made in Italy.
THE JOY OF A HOUSE BY THE SEA | LARGE WINDOWS FOR A PROTAGONIST LIGHT
The first thing that strikes you when you enter this beautiful penthouse is the brightness of the spaces. We wanted to equip each room with large floor-to-ceiling windows, so that even from the sofa you can admire the sea and enjoy the sunlight from dawn to sunset.
All rooms are decorated in soft colors, dominated by the light oak of the floor and the almost total white of the walls. The kitchen is also built almost entirely with white furniture, giving the illusion of a continuous wall which then merges with the rest of the room. The result is an extremely elegant furniture in its simplicity and purity of lines.
The same effect also occurs when you go out onto the magnificent terrace, a place dedicated to conviviality, relaxation, or even just to enjoy the view and the marine atmosphere. The furniture, in fact, is perfect for a very lived-in outdoor space. The table with marble top, useful for withstanding any weather, is generously sized, designed for many guests. The same goes for the sofa, designed with seats in synthetic material suitable for rain and in any case extremely comfortable and welcoming.
In short, with great satisfaction we were able to make the sea co-protagonist of the renovation project of this house, creating a nest that welcomes the family in this new life.
With the Capponi GC you go beyond the mere execution of a project and you have a reliable and serious guide, which has made the respect for time and costs its philosophy. If we add the incredible attention to detail, we have the recipe for a truly exceptional undertaking. My house is now the most beautiful attic in Sanremo.
