  • Giulia Brutto Architect

    After graduating in Architecture from the University of Florence in 2007, I immediately began a seven-year collaboration with an architectural studio in Catanzaro. During this period, my intense design activity focused mainly on the recovery and restoration of historical artefacts in the public sector, not without experience in the field of town planning and urban design.
    At the same time as my experience in public works, my creative and professional research has also led me to approach private clients, engaging in the renovation of flats and private residences and the fitting out of concept stores and clubs.
    Since 2014, I have started an architecture studio, “Barbaro 16” in Catanzaro, which deals with architectural design, from interior details to macro design, including restoration and fittings.

    “The passion for beautiful and simple things and the emotional memory they carry with them combine and translate into a sober rational framework, the use of traditional materials, craftsmanship, recycling and giving new life to an object rich in history.”
    “And so, you end up “taking your pleasures seriously”, as the great Charles Eames used to ironically say while smoking his pipe.


    What where your objectives when you chose the materials to be used for your floor or wall coverings?

    Chapó stands for an ungrammatical hat trick. Hats off for the quality of the products on offer, ungrammatical because it has that accented O out of place. As if it were an upturned hat. The interior concept is strongly associated with the use of materials. Concrete materials, iron and wood, accompanied by marble and cement, in a chic version. The cement is interrupted by inlays of hexagonal tiles, the Examatt chosen in shades of grey, which stand out on the walls and floor, creating original inlays and representing the most characteristic and identifying motif of the interior associated with the brand. Everything is made to measure. Everything has been designed down to the smallest detail and crafted by local artisans, such as the counter framed in a structure of natural wood slats, a theme that is repeated in another complementary corner of the room and in the backs of the benches that project this vertical scanning of the slats outwards.

    What made you chose the Tonalite products?

    Because the products leave plenty of room for customisation and design of decorative solutions and because of the wide range of textures and colours available.

    What colours and combinations did you chose and how did you use them?

    Examatt in shades of grey and white, combined with the relevant decorations. The laying pattern used was one of those proposed by the company for the wall and floor coverings in the bathrooms, while for the wall and floor inserts in the hall it was varied with the completely random insertion of decorative Examatt. For the pizzeria, polished diamond-treated Kraklè in white was used in a running installation, in view of the need to have a suitable environment from the point of view of health and hygiene without having to give up the refinement of the materials.
