In the attic of a small villa from the 1940s in the foothills near Bologna, the steel radiators of the Vintage collection by Vasco, in white, are the protagonists of a major overhaul in terms of styling and energy efficiency.
In the project by the architect Elisa Manelli, the space stands out for the light that enters through the many windows, reflecting on the predominantly white furnishings and facings: white walls, blanched wood floors, and roof planks treated with pale gray and ochre.
A large open area contains the living and kitchen zones. All the matte white painted furnishings have been custom-made by craftsmen, interlocking with the architectural volumes. A few notes of pastel colors break up the overall tone.
The floor in the bathroom features small antique pink hexagonal mosaic tiles, and gray-blue plaster walls.
The bedroom has one wall left in exposed brick, its color attenuated by a light coat of white.
The lighting is done with an informal solution, playing with electrical cables and suspension lamps to create a decorative aerial effect.
A company of reference in Europe for efficient heating systems with low environmental impact, Vasco transforms old houses – that have become obsolete in terms of energy consumption – into true comfort spaces, where the most advanced technologies generate everyday wellbeing, energy savings and respect for the environment.
