The goal was to transform it into a contemporary loft with a timeless elegance and with a quite atmosphere without forgetting the spirit of the Baroque period in Rome. In fact, the curved balustrade and the serpentine suspended tv stand was inspired by the serpentine facade of Church of Saint Charles at the Four Fountains, designed by Francesco Borromini in Rome.

The loft is openly organized with living, kitchen, and bathroom located on the first floor, and the bedroom on a private mezzanine above. A Reflective glass is used to provide a sense of expanse of inner space. the living area is floored with matte roman travertine slabs, and the sofa and table are made of solid chestnut like the original ceiling beams. The lighting is provided indirectly to give a quite atmosphere.
