Today we’re excited to show you this charming home in Milan, owned by Industrial Designer Francesco Faccin. An authentic place full of stories, memories and history. Set within a c.1850 building originally designed by Italian architect Carlo Maciachini, the house was spoiled by previous renovations and demanded a “glory recovery” . Besides being capable of doing such rescue, Faccin did it in a way that will leave you breathless… And all by himself!
Handy by trade, Faccin did everything on his own, learning to plaster, install electrical cables, build walls and lay tiles to get the job done. The resulting interior is stunning, from its quirky palette of olive green, neon orange and butter yellow, to its crooked walls.

Faccin successfully returned walls, opened up windows and removed a false ceiling to reveal the apartment’s original 4.2 metre vaulted ceiling roof. He also made a wooden loft and replaced the doors throughout the apartment with those retrieved from a demolished old house.
Furnished with some of Faccin’s designs and a whole lot of trinkets collected in a lifetime, the apartment is the spatial embodiment of a person with true style… How cool?
