Mid Century Modern Residence by Marcante-Testa, Andrea Marcante and Adelaide Testa will renovate a 19th century building in the center of Venice, the two designers call it “Another Venice.” This project was completed in 2017 and becomes a tribute to the place where it is, the nature that surrounds them .
The main design factors at stake are bold colors in retro tones, unexpected materials such as Viennese straw and wicker, and vivid patterns that juxtapose monochrome.
The residence “Le Temps Retrouvé” – as the project was nicknamed by the designers – is part of the now as it is from a past time.
Example of this is the dining area and the living room. The “Chiavi Segrete” green wallpaper from Cole & Son’s Fornasetti II collection is the main highlight, involving almost all space.
Elements implemented from the vertical architecture of the façades to the decoration are implemented, to reflect this in everything from the structural elements of the apartment to the standards presented.
The walls of the bathroom have contrasting colors, dividing the space in a simple and pleasant way to look
The wood-paneled fish floors feature a partial resin that “highlights” the space around the dining table with marble effect laminate – two more retro touches.
The apartment develops through diaphragm dividers with painted metal and brass structures, green glass filler elements and Venetian stuccoed wood paneling. The dividers conserve natural light even in the windowless areas.
It is a space with character of timeless, different and creative design, which was created to make life easier for those who are lucky enough to turn the key in the front door, kick their shoes and call this place “home.”
