Interior Design in Florence

BY JURI FAVILLI
@ VOL 1 ON MAR 02, 2012

In this presentation, Juri Favilli covers an architectural renovation project for a flat in the middle of Florence's old town. The concept was to have new living areas in which most of the home's functions were placed in the walls. You end up with a living space with almost no furniture, which answered the client's request of wanting an "ordered home." (in Italian)
