Flat Eleven was originally part of a larger home belonging to the parents of owner/architect Claudio Pierattelli, in a historic building opposite the famous Palazzo Pitti in central Florence. Creating a truly separate home, he added an independent entrance, a kitchen, and opened up the space to allow rooms to flow from one into another. Repainting the new apartment and cabinetry white, as well as replacing the flooring with a lighter, semi-gloss French herringbone parquet, allowing light to bounce throughout the home and illuminate the entire flat. The new kitchen features a full complement of hidden appliances, as well as concealed extraction and a floating two person dining table. A refurbished cantilevered staircase leads from these bright, open living spaces to a redesigned loft bedroom, where a glass balustrade allows light to still reach the bedroom. With this redesign, Claudio converted a dim set of living spaces into a contemporary, bright and open home perfect for minimal city living.
