6 of 10

Barcelona-based firm Colombo and Serboli Architecture (CaSA) renovated this 700-square-foot apartment in Born—the city’s oldest neighborhood—for a young Italian woman working in the fashion industry. The outdated unit had good bones, but it was extremely dark due to its original layout. Now, colorful built-in cabinets provide ample storage throughout the renovated home. The kitchen features a recurring arc motif: The coral-colored volume even hides a powder room near the island, which is made from a pink terrazzo-like quartz.
