Two years ago during Milan Design Week it was possible to access to the 9th level of Solea Tower, one of the three new luxurious residential towers in Porta Nuova, and visit one of the thirty-three apartments developed by the Italian architecture firm Caputo Partnership.
This penthouse boasts a unique view over the new and old skyline of Milan; the large terraces give the opportunity to admire the city from a completely new perspective.
The interior was set up by Dolce Vita Homes and curated by Nina Yashar . Beautiful is the living area, designed as a linear open space with a large living room, built on two levels, that extends out on two sides with terraces.
The south-facing terrace is particularly impressive. It is enclosed by glazed brise soleil that gives the feeling of being in an enclosed outdoor living space, a characteristic that provides a great sense of privacy. This is a highly valuable addition to the apartment that combined with a minimalistic design allows any kind of activity to take place.
I can easily see myself having breakfast, doing yoga, making a time-lapse capturing the sun going down behind Milan and so on.
I appreciated also the casual and sensory atmosphere given by the inclusion of citrus trees in the terrace and the colour choice of finishes and furnishings.
