HANDLES FOR THE HARMONY OF THE OPPOSITES
In modern architecture the harmony of the opposites is pushing more and more to the reconciliation between traces of the past and contemporary. Have you tried with Colombo Design handles?
This practice is increasingly widespread in the renovation of ancient palaces in the center of the biggest Italian cities.
Ancient houses have undoubtedly a special charm and, if they are renovated properly, they allow to benefit from a great number of advantages hardly achievable in a modern apartment but, they need very often a modernization.
Renovating an ancient apartment with handles
An important aspect to keep into account is that renovating an ancient apartment requires great attention, many available resources and experts that could enhance it.
In fact, apart from the remedial measures for the plant system upgrade, non-invasive restoration offers an “archeological” insight of the building’s past.
So, in this kind of apartments, a restoration of conservative type aimed at conservation and historical enhancement of the environment, often bringer of culture and tradition, is necessary.
Designers can proceed following 2 different ways:
