Architect and designer Cristina Celestino has just revealed the complete remodel of a private residence in a striking, brutalist concrete apartment block in Udine, Italy. Originally designed in 1978 by architect Bodini Massimo Camillo, the building features expansive apartment interiors with private balconies, bronzed aluminum windows frames, travertine stone clad communal areas and pink, textured plaster in the stairwells.
Spaning some 120 sq m, this home was redesigned to respond to the existing materials and original architectural concept, Celestino explains. ‘I tried to enhance all these aspects, respecting the materials and taking inspiration from the existing geometries. The customer requested a functional home, sober but elegant and refined, with a balanced and thoughtful use of colors and materials.’
