Located in the center of the historical Italian city of Mantua, the unique looking Monolocale EFFE apartment is characterised by an original fresco mural on its walls, discovered under decade old layers of paint by architecture and design firm Archiplanstudio, during the renovation. Originally part of a larger apartment, Archiplanstudio knocked down the wall between the original bedrooms creating a separate entrance, a new bathroom, kitchen and dining area all built around a central sleeping cube added to the middle of the apartment. The open living area includes the dining space, with an expandable dining table and floating bench seat integrated into the wall of the sleeping cube. The simple but fully equipped kitchen with light gray cabinets and brass finishes, includes a wall mounted induction hob that can be placed on the counter when needed, freeing up much needed counter space. The clever custom-made bench set along the window functions as a generous low shelf with storage space beneath, as well as additional seating for guests.
