The luxurious T House in fashionable Milan, Italy


International design studio Modourbano and Italian interior designer Takane Ezoe have joined forces to create the T House project.  Completed in 2012, the contemporary property is located in Sant’Ambrogio, Milan, Italy.

According to the designers the contemporary Italian property was born from the needs of our client, an artist that preferred open spaces, rooms without boundaries between public and private – where one can work until late at night.

“The studio was designed with specific characteristics such as being large, bright, comfortable, with the ability to hold meetings with employees and where the artist could move easily between works of great size, but at the same time simple and neutral where you can work without external interference. In the vicinity of the study we designed the gallery/exhibition space, connected to an archive where the client could store his work in a practical way.

“The contemporary designed Italian house is dominated by the kitchen where you can prepare meals for a conveniently large number of guests and where to organise social occasions. The living spaces are deliberately lean, characterised by maximum flexibility to freely configure the furniture into it without the oppression of too many objects.

“The sleeping area, located on the mezzanine floor is an intimate, permeable but inviolable area; the master bathroom, as in Japanese tradition, recalls the thermal baths in stone and wood, characterised by the large pool and relaxing lighting from below.

“The functional layout refers to the traditional Japanese buildings where everything is ‘semi-open’ and the spaces are divided with the traditional sliding doors fussuma or syouji, hence the idea of having open spaces and large planimetrically double heights to emphasise the peculiarity of this space in Milan a former eighteenth century stable.

“In all the design choices, there was the desire to preserve and enhance the distinctive character of this place, the stone fragments, the arches of the large windows and large wooden beam of gallery. The contemporary property is the combination of sophisticated elegance of an eighteenth century loft in Milan and depth of a Japanese house.”
