CONTEMPORARY DESIGN IN A HISTORICAL PALAZZO in ITALY by B-ARCH

Casa Orlandi is a late-18th century home, built in Prato by a Tuscan  family. The house was richly decorated by one of the main Tuscan fresco painters : Luigi Catani, who worked for the grand duke of Tuscany, at Palazzo Pitti in Florence and in various Medici villas in the environs of Florence .In the restoration there was the strong desire to introduce elements of contemporaneity – though ones that are not stereotypical pieces by Italian designer, but rather a mix, very simple elements, objects found around European markets with elements by famous international designers. Casa Orlandi is a passing-through place for sensitive travellers who love the authenticity of antiquity and the pleasures of modernity.
