Luxury homes: A light-filled house by a sea port in Genoa, Italy

The gorgeous apartment features an unusual spatial layout and a light, cheerful palette — not to mention stunning views of the sea port next to it.

Created for a gallery owner and graphic designer couple, this home is everything one needs to build a young family, even if it is a bit unconventional. The two-storey home is situated on the highest hill in the city of Genoa, the capital of the Italian region of Liguria, and boasts amazing views. On one side is the hill of Castello; the other overlooks the busy sea port.

Designed by Luca Scardulla and Federico Robbiano of design firm llab, the home’s unusual layout was initially a challenge, but they overcame it with the creative use of space and a light, playful colour palette. The result is a beautiful, light-filled home that lifts the spirits.

    While most homes have their communal spaces on the first level and the bedrooms on the second, this home does it the other way round, with the sleeping quarters on the first floor.

    Here, the original Genoese terrazzo floor tiles were preserved, lending visual interest to the clean minimalist bedroom.
