Cavità di pietra e continuità spaziale


An insight into Pibamarmi’s stand at the Milan Fair next month. Designed by Manuel Aires Mateus for the Internazionale del Bagno 2012, the incredible series of stone objects and surfaces that have a beautiful continuity. The natural beauty of the stone with Pibamarmi’s artisan touch create beautiful relationships within the space.

Abitalia work with Pibamarmi to create unique contemporary bathrooms. Few companies can treat the stone on the same capacity as Pibamarmi. The attention to the finish, whether marble or natural stone, makes this company stand apart. For more information about Pibamarmi, or would like Abitalia to design your bathroom, please contact us.

Traditional meets contemporary

This Edwardian Grade II listed building was erected in 1910, it has since had an extension in 1937 and now a second contemporary extension in 2012.

The brief was to create a contemporary luxury hotel that would fit sympathetically into it’s existing Edwardian surrounds. 

The challenge of placing modern living within a traditional architectural space is something that Abitalia faces on a regular occurrence. Abitalia take careful consideration over every aspect of a project and pride ourselves on our attention to detail. 

Contemporary furniture can certainly sit within the walls of another era beautifully. The comparison between sleek, simple furniture and ornate, decorative walls can compliment each other perfectly. 

If you have a Regency, Edwardian or any other style of architectural building and are looking to re design with contemporary furniture and fixings, why not email Abitalia and see what we can do for you.

Contemporary meets Cotswolds

This Grade II listed house dates from the 16th century, when a series of small farm houses occupied a secluded spot within the rolling hills of the Cotswolds. Though owning the property for sometime, the client wanted a contemporary approach to the latest renovation work. With the architecture of the room, along with the roll top bathtub, being original, the furniture, sanitary ware and accessories of this contemporary bathroom were all designed and installed by Abitalia. 

Featured in this month’s issue of Real Homes magazine, this fantastic bathroom brings modern and traditional together perfectly. The brown and bronze colour scheme throughout compliments the existing oak beams, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Giellesse Groove wardrobes finished in an elegant acid-etched bronze glass provides comprehensive clothes storage, which softening the architectural lines of the bathroom. Keope ‘Line Bronze’ floor and wall tiles from the ‘Wish’ collection continue the subtle colour scheme. For more information on bathroom design or any of the bands mentioned, please contact Abitalia by email or by phone 01242 262155.
