Renovation & Interior Design of a stylish apartment in Turku, Finland by Maurizio Giovannoni

The apartment is a little penthouse (about 65 mq.) in Turku, Southern Finland. Before renovation, walls and doors blocked the passage of light, and the most beautiful view of the historical sites of Turku was on the bedroom side. My principal goal in this project was letting the light flow in and creating a relaxing living room where my customer could do his creative work.

The partial demolition of walls was a natural consequence, along with reversing the location of the bedroom and living room. After fixing this, my customer and I decided on the overall “concept” and organized all the details that colored the white spaces. The result is what I now consider my style: a blend of cultures. There is nothing that stimulates me more than to study different countries and make some cultural themes recognizable but never intrusive in the project.

In this case, the floor is covered with parquet of white ash. The kitchen table is heat tanned birch, while the shelves have remained a plain birch. Wood is an omnipresent element in this flat, as it constantly is for the Finnish, but the real attention is catalyzed by the nature theme pictured on wall paper, carrying colours and contrasts and a typical Mediterranean “courage”.

The furniture itself is a mix of the 2 cultures and of past & present: the grandmother’s armchair is a piece of Finnish vintage from the sixties as is the red floor lamp. The arc framing the wall paper is the famous Twiggy by Foscarini and the suspended lamps are Italian as well: Olimpia by Ideal Lux. Everything fits together in perfect harmony!
