A stylish space designed by artists for artists (or the artist at heart), these 4 stunning apartments in Florence were created with the intention of providing a unique destination to live, work and collaborate right in the heart of the city.
Adapted from a 16th-century palazzo, there are three individually designed apartments that are available to rent along with an exhibition and workspace where you can unleash your creativity or simply enjoy as a peaceful urban escape.
These three apartments offer artists an expansive living experience, with five-metre ceilings and large windows that overlook the streets of Florence. These windows are well positioned to allow natural light in all day which highlights the remains of historic frescoes, original fireplaces and decorative period detail.
The interiors are designed specifically for relaxation – an ideal space in which to unwind. Everything the owners have done here is designed to encourage contemplation and observation, to allow guests to be idle, to dwell a moment and to enjoy.
The particular apartment that has been pictured above contains a large open lounge and dining room with an attached full-sized kitchen. Upstairs there is a mezzanine bedroom with a full-sized modern bathroom attached.
There is also an 'Artist in residency' program allows artists to apply to work, live and exhibit here with an in-house space for photo shoots, exhibitions, events, workshops and meetings. Proceeds from the rental are reinvested into the Numeroventi Residency program to fund artists and artistic development throughout the city.
Florence, capital of Italy’s Tuscany region, is home to many masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture. One of its most iconic sights is the Duomo, a cathedral that dominates the skyline with a terracotta-tiled dome engineered by Brunelleschi and a bell tower by Giotto.
The apartments are centrally located only a 5 minute walk from the Duomo itself as well as the Santa Croce Square and is in an area full of excellent restaurants and traditional taverns at the centre of one of the most fascinating and important cities in Italy.
The centre of Florence is mostly a car-free zone, so if you are coming by Train and arriving at the Santa Maria Novella (SMN) Train Station we advise that you simply walk or catch one of the buses that loop around the old town.
If you are coming from the Airport, it's about 20 min in a taxi or half an hour via one of the local shuttle buses.
