While light warms the abode to no end – it’s also the material palette that is to credit for this feeling. Aside from the sheer curtains that soften the light source, the clean and classic Parisian interior details are obvious throughout; wall panelling – that creates depth and dimension in the narrow space, herringbone timber flooring, chevron-pattered marble in the bathroom as well as brass and black-metal fixtures and fittings. Everything seems like an elegant extension of the other, like the white Vola mixer on the Kitchen island, that appears like a sculptural extension of the marble.
What we’re big fans of in Casa Atrio is the custom-designed elements – revealing the kind of craftsmanship Biasol are known for. Jean-Pierre says they custom-designed interior elements as freestanding pieces “true to European style”. This is best seen in the kitchen, that Jean-Pierre says has “the sense of being a furniture piece rather than built-in joinery with cupboards framing the benchtop and appliances; the rangehood integrated into the bench to maximise storage and seamless surfaces”.
