The new Italian kid on the block is calling itself the Soccer Loft, a humble little space dedicated to the diehard football fan.

Designed in 2016 by Metroarea Architetti, the apartment features exposed raw timber beams on the ceiling, vintage tanned leather sofas, a bright red retro SMEG refrigerator and one hell of a throwback bathtub that’ll have any man weeping in happiness.

The lounge is where the action takes centre stage with an exposed fire place, expansive suede lounge and widescreen TV allowing for ample sport viewing. When it’s time for to play your own game, there’s a slick games room with a foosball table.

The rest of the home is an eclectic clash of vintage cool with natural textures and a stunning glass staircase to offset it all. It’s a guarantee that even if your team loses, you’re still a winner with a space like this one.

The only thing we think that’s lacking? A FIFA trophy as a statement piece.
