One of Aulenti’s architectural additions to the existing apartment was a catwalk over the living room that leads to a solarium, lit in the evening by one of her 1967 King Sun lamps for Kartell. The door opens onto a roof garden that overlooks the Piazza San Marco.  Photo 2 of 6 in Elegant Milan Home of Designer Gae Aulenti

Books from Aulenti’s extensive library overflow onto stools—designed by Alvar Aalto and produced by Artek—in her bedroom. The door handle, Otto A, is her own design for Fusital, from 1978.  Photo 3 of 6 in Elegant Milan Home of Designer Gae Aulenti
