It was Maurizio’s design of his own apartment in South East London 15 years ago that got him a place at university. He told his tutors how he had designed and built much of his one bedroom apartment, how he had converted the loft into a master bedroom and dressing room, designed and built a black spiral staircase and created a bathroom which artfully combines wood panelling with tiles. It took him six years to complete, and is a capsule collection of all the things he loves - dark woods, leather, stone, wallpaper and a brown, grey and blue colour palette. He also designed much of the cabinetry and furniture himself.
