This delightful holiday apartment is nested In the heart of the enchanting Italian Alps with a breath-taking panorama.

AXD Studio was called to totally transform this compact 80 sqm apartment in order to better accommodate the new dwellers’ needs.

Inspired by the local traditions still adopting a contemporary language, AXD Studio’s design process aimed to maximize functionality and optimize every angle of the house. A rational and constant focus on space saving allowed to get the very most of this small home’s potential.

With great precision, every single function has been strategically positioned and dovetailed inside the house just like a perfect puzzle, playing around the staircase, sometimes adding rooms above it, sometimes integrating functions below it.

The final results is a unique and tailored contemporary home where the new and distinctive functional volumes made of bright and soft natural wood essences are placed inside the existing home shell.
