Castro Wood Floors Presents A Roman Penthouse Department

This beautiful penthouse apartment, located in the centre of Rome, has been completely redesigned by Carola Vannini. It is a beautiful mix of modern finishes and quality pieces that give this space a fresh, contemporary vibe.

Natural lighting is a key ingredient in this open plan apartment. The renovation saw the removal of a corridor which was replaced with three glass doors built into the wall that separates the living area from the large terrace.

The ancient building structure has been emphasized by restoring the precious wooden ceilings. A sage green with very light touches of gold and silver have been selected to enlighten the decor.

In the living room (where the existing ceiling was made of simple plasterboard) the double height of the space has been brought back to life.

A cozy office space has taken place underneath the restored wooden beams. The kitchen has also been redesigned by the architect in order to be open toward both, the dining and the outdoor space.

Underneath the kitchen island, a carpet of old tiles (retrived from the old apartment’s floors and restored) has been placed and adjusted to the necessary proportions, in order to create a peculiar inlay into the wooden floors.


The master bedroom shares an exquisite ceiling with the master bathroom which creates a continuous flow of light into these spaces.

The terrace has an outdoor custom made kitchen (designed by Carola Vannini), a dining and living space. Warm colours with black details are the fil rouge of the entire project, while giving character and warmth without giving up on the unique modern flair.

Prized in every space, are the wooden floors which add a rich tone and warmth to the apartment – inside and out. Everything in this luxurious residence has been designed, and no details have been left to chance, including the majestic floors that offer so much value and depth in this home.
