The interiors of the Acut Residence, originally designed in the 1990s, were totally reinvented by Gloria Cortina in a close dialogue with the clients.

The rooms had previously been cluttered and lacked a spatial or aesthetic narrative. The new design scheme is a highly conceptual coming together of art, space, light and shadow. The rooms now have a cool, subtly expressive aesthetic, with international furniture and superb artworks suggested by Gloria.

Her own pieces add to the settings, and include a Golden Universe obsidian table, and a bespoke, stone-based dining table.
