New Brutalist Architecture in Outskirts of Milan | Vincenzo De Cotiis 

– For avid collectors of modern art and furnishings, Vincenzo De Cotiis, the Milan-based architect, designer and artist, created a Private Brutalist Architecture –

This is a Precious Residence Project designed on the Outskirts of Milan.

De Cotiis set up his design practice more than 20 years ago and is known for his fully textured, ruggedly limited-edition and custom furniture wich balance icon modernist materials with less usual ones.

Originally from the north of Italy, Vincenzo was challanged to design, from the ground up, a residence for a couple who are avid collectors of art, objects, and vintage 20th- century furnishings. 

The form is defined by the lot and the required choice of materials: a contemporary bunker adapted to accommodate the cultural life of an educated couple.

Vincenzo De Cottis says:

“The challenge was to create an architecture that comes to life inwards while screening its exterior, giving a sense of protection and intimacy.”

Because of the owners’ wish for privacy and the close proximity of the neighboring houses, De Cotiis created a rather brutalist concrete building, tempered with abundant natural light and outdoor space.

De Cotiis takes this “bunker” and imbues it with warmth, texture, and human scale. “A sort of system of interlocking volumes” is what he calls.

You enter on the ground floor, in one side of the living room you have a De Cotiis–designed rug faced  with a brown coffee vintage curved sofa and one of his custom tables (it is irregularly shaped marble top, set on brass legs), that give a both strong and glamorous look.

One the other side, a custom-designed shelving system, made of steel, brass, and recycled wood, stands in the center of the room and includes a built-in desk.Brutalist Architecture by Vicenzo De cottis brutalist architecture New Brutalist Architecture in Outskirts of Milan | Vincenzo De Cotiis AD0220 DE COTIIS 7 700x445

Walking into the living room, the space opens to a outdoor area and swimming pool.

On the terrace, a marble-and-brass side table by Vincenzo De Cotiis stands alongside a pair of vintage chairs. The home’s exterior is made of concrete, painted wood, and brass.

His ability to master both fine art, and the art of living through design is what we highlight from this Milan Brutalist architecture. As De Cotiis says, “Abstraction, undoing the functional aspects of objects and things, is a process that fascinates me . . . and perhaps I will move ever more in that direction.”
