SET Architects completes an early 1900 apartment that plays on the dialogue between history and modernity.

The use of natural materials such as wood and marble, the careful study of colors and the relationship between light and shadows give life to a project with an elegant atmosphere suspended over time. The apartment is located in the historic center of Fondi, a small town in central Italy.

In the late ‘50s, the apartment fell into disuse until 2018 when a young couple of entrepreneurs decided to buy it and renovate it. At the time of the purchase, the space still presented the typical twentieth-century subdivision with many rooms served by a distribution corridor. The strategy of the project was to adapt the flat to the contemporary lifestyle of the young owners through large and fluid spaces while retaining some elements that recall the original character of the apartment.
