The official RiFRA blog, Kitchens and Baths direct from Milano


The project is an architectural renovation of an industrial building in Pavia, which has been disused for about ten years and reconverted into a residential loft that is fascinating in every detail.

Our client, Silvio Fornaro, owner of Domustime in Pavia, which is involved in building and turnkey renovation projects, has clearly adopted a conservative approach.

The decision was taken right from the start to recover many of the building’s original features, such as the exposed bricks, with the aim of highlighting the iron staircase leading to the intermediate floor, which is used as a sleeping area.

The plan of the building is like a parallelepiped, and this unusual shape has made it possible to play around with the choice of furnishings, lighting and certain differences in height to change the perspective and create different spaces in the same room.

The RiFRA kitchen was in fact installed above an illuminated difference in level, focusing attention on it and enhancing an already attractive and interesting space.

The model chosen by the customer is the FLY kitchen in a matt stone lacquer finish.

The FLY model is characterised by the lightness of its design given by the 30° cut of the top, which enhances the extraordinary scenographic effect of this island that immediately catches the eye.

Even in the kitchen we see the conservative aspect emerge from the choice of combining an antique element, such as the solid wood table, a carpenter’s worktop, with the modern, clean and linear design of the RiFRA models.

The panoramic iron staircase leads to the mezzanine; RiFRA has also furnished the open bathroom, adjacent to the sleeping area, open to the living area below.

The model chosen is KONE, in a pure matt white lacquered finish, giving design and elegance to the room.

Our designers and interior designers worked together interpreting the client’s needs, making the most of the space and vocation of the existing environment.


We would like to thank our client Silvio Fornaro of @Domustime in Pavia.

It is a pleasure for us to announce that, in collaboration with Silvio Fornaro, we will open the third RiFRA Store, which will be in Pavia at Villa Campeggi, a unique location.

RiFRA Store Pavia will be open by appointment only and will display a ONE kitchen, a KUBE kitchen, the bathroom collection and a walk-in wardrobe, contextualized in an elegant and classy environment.

More communications will follow soon.


Our experience is also available online, through the free kitchen and bathroom design service. Our designers will listen to your needs and then we will develop a unique and exclusive project for you.

See you soon
The RiFRA Team
