This impressive apartment is located in the Trastevere neighborhood of Rome, Italy and it was designed by the MdAA architects practice with contemporary and rustic elements integrated into a cohesive whole.

Trastevere still had a number of stables in use in the early 1900s and the structure in which the apartment is located used to be one of these stables to the area is quite large compared to usual homes in the area with large trusses covering it and tall rooms.

In one area the apartment height reaches ten meters and the main challenge for the designers was to create the master bedroom which had to be completely closed off from the noise coming from the living area on the ground floor.

The vertical orientation of the structure is obvious once you know the original purpose of the building needing sufficient space for horses and carts so the apartment uses this to its advantage leaving some of the stable’s elements still visible to add a rustic motif to the ambiance.
