Embracing the past

Archiplan Studio’s mandate was to restore a small apartment in a Renaissance Palazzo in Mantua, Italy. The apartment was filled with fragmented traces of the past including fragments of 16th-century frescoes. Not daunted by the mission, the founders of Archiplan, Diego Cisi and Stefano Gorni Silvestrini, opted to embrace the old and inject in the new. The result is spectacular. Instead of competing, the two styles complement each other in a spectacular way. The contemporary style cohabits happily with the layers of history.

The effect is sleek, restful and refined.
