Italian Apartment Renovation Brings Open Space to 1960s Home

The architects have suggested that the resulting apartment is intended to "meditate on empty space." The clean, modern lines of everything from the natural hardwood flooring to the contemporary furnishings from designer sundaymorning, stack themselves around the empty spaces of the home.
