Hip Bed and Breadfast Designed by ARCHIMED PROGETTAZIONI
By Magaly • May 18, 2018
This hip bed and breakfast was designed by the Italian architectural firm ARCHIMED PROGETTAZIONI Architetti Associati in 2017. It is called “L’Officina di Apollo,” or “Apollo’s Office,” and it is located in Palermo, a city in the autonomous region of Sicily, in Southern Italy.
The interior makes use of a yellowed-wood motif throughout the different areas of the bed in breakfast in order to create continuity, putting it to use as tabletops and cabinet doors in the kitchen and dining room, on the walls, as headboards and footboards for the beds in the bedrooms, and as additional surfaces in the bathrooms. The skeleton of all furnishings and details is done in black, forged iron, adding to this sense of continuity as well as granting the spaces a sense of the industrial. Simple light fixtures hanging from the ceiling with black wires and ending in a naked light bulb continue this same trend.
Colorful and trendy pieces of contemporary art decorate the walls, adding an extra touch of vibrancy to the spaces, as well as a bit of culture. By contrast, the bedding in all bedrooms is done in earthy and neutral tones, creating a sense of peace and serenity for these special places.
