A NEW LIFE FOR AN ATTIC SURROUNDED BY GREENERY
A tailor-made renovation project for an apartment in the chic hillside area of Turin
Enhancing existing volumes and creating unprecedented spaces to meet new living needs. Enjoy a large outdoor terrace in every season, thanks to the bioclimatic pergola.
THE LIVING ROOM
At the entrance, the perspective is forced open from all directions: the room appears even more spacious and full of light due to the mirror effect.
The sloping ceiling was exploited to insert hidden cabinets, accessible through the exposed metal staircase.
The minimal, modular bookcase, conceived to design, emphasizes the broken line of the steps. The light from the window placed to the side perfectly frames the grandeur of the Mole Antonelliana, the symbol of Turin, and further enhances the design of the staircase.
Together with the bookcase shelves, the staircase draws lines that continue all the way to the kitchen.
The dark volumes of the base units and quartzite countertop are placed orthogonal to the equipped columns: the handle design is tailored to the project.
It echoes the tones and materials of nature for a space that provides relaxation and comfort. The bioclimatic aluminum pergola, with a cover of adjustable sunshade slates, makes it perfectly enjoyable in any season.
The master bedroom and guest room are divided by a central partition on which the loft rests that is intended for a small private study: completely open, light comes in from both the large windows in both rooms.
The walnut desk, shaped to size, remains visually suspended from the dark bases.
THE GUEST ROOM
It hides away a large, concealed cabinet with ribbed doors. The most interesting detail of this cabinet is found in the protruding drawers that accompany the staircase to the study above.
THE MASTER BEDROOM
The protagonist is the American walnut wall, which, with its elegant color and wonderful grain, decorates what appears to be a bed headboard that is actually a usable closet.
CLEAR AND DARK
Throughout the home, light volumes alternate with dark ones. Lines intertwine and meet, accentuated by the design of Flos' Zero Tracks, which follow the slopes of the ceiling.
