Spacious Apartment in the Italian Countryside

View all 8 Photos

The MP Apartment by Burnazzi Feltrin Architetti is a countryside home in Valcanover, Italy. South-facing, the living space sees plenty of sun, plus views of gardens, orchards, and Caldonazzo lake. Natural lighting warms the organic, neutral-colored interior, and the sights connect the three-level home to the outdoors. The basement is designated for utility, the ground floor for common areas, and the first floor for bedrooms and study. Of particular interest are the two uppermost floors, both outfitted with a fireplace and large windows. Bright and welcoming, the ground floor includes an open plan living, dining, and kitchen area wrapped around a central fireplace and wood storage unit. Upstairs, the bedrooms, study, and balcony are sparsely decorated so that attention is focused on the smooth, lime plastered walls and oak-lined floors. In this highest section of the home, glass doors and blinds overlook the balcony, where residents can tend to a small, private garden and admire the landscape.
