Harbour Attic by Gosplan

Italian architecture studio Gosplan recently refurbishment a flat in Camogli, a charming village near Genoa. It is a small holiday apartment, an attic above the old fishermen’s harbour. The project aim was to build two bedrooms, a studio, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom, despite the gambrel roof and the very small floor surface (about 30 square meters).

That led to a tailored apartment, where each room is a piece of furniture: after you have used it, you can close it. The outcome is halfway between an existenzminimum challenge and a fashionable Le-Corbusierian cabanon.

The main bedroom is totally made of wood, a darker one compared to the parquet used in the living room. It’s a sort of wooden box, an inhabited furniture. As a tribute to the modern tradition, architects choosed Le Corbusier‘s ‘lamp de Marseille‘ to characterize the living and they lighted up the bedroom with the ‘pivotant wall lamp’ by Charlotte Perriand.
