Architect Giacomo Garziano recently renovated his parent's home by adding a multifaceted exterior bathed in a bright red hue. When it comes to old European apartments, there is a growing need for modern updates. This architect decided to go beyond simply renovating run-down walls by giving the home a futuristic finish.

Garziano's latest project consisted of renovating the home his grandfather originally built in the 1950s and later extended in the 1970s. To bring the home into the 21st century, Garziano added a multifaceted exterior comprised of intricate geometric patterns. To make the patterns truly stand out, Garziano used a deep crimson hue that sets the home apart in the old Italian neighborhood. The effect is a series of three-dimensional shapes that are not only visually intriguing, but also energy efficient.
