A place of elegant comfort is a project designed by GAO architects. “We designed the apartment with a special sense of love for the family living in it – it was their openness, hospitality and unwavering trust that gave meaning to this project and allowed us to create a space that is in tune with their desires. In furnishing the previous apartment, the clients swore by a minimalism in white, so we tried to hang onto this softness and freshness as a guiding stylistic principle as we designed the new home, also enhancing the details by means of pleasant contrasts, soft colours and materials of various textures.
