The restoration of a late-18th century stable
A pied-à-terre full of charm and history
Maintaining the charm of a place that's seen history and has highly characterised dimensions and details from its original time period, enriching it with contemporary living standards.
In the historic centre of Turin, a late-18th century building, the part that underwent renovation was once used as a stable, with access from the courtyard.
The living area
The original vaults in the living and sleeping area were retained.
The large ethanol fireplace doesn't require a chimney and its upper section serves as a completely usable shelving. Low temperature, autonomous, underfloor heating system.
Special attention was paid to the lighting: retractable LED lighting with motion sensor in the bathroom and above the furniture, lighting fixtures from some of the most recognisable brands, Flos and Catellani & Smith.
The kitchen stretches out toward the living area with a 45 cm deep container wall, in American walnut with a brown mirror. Sticking with the 6 cm American walnut, the table, supported by a very thick glass pane and adjoining the stunning brushed black granite kitchen counter.
The sleeping area
The original plaster has been removed from the vaults, leaving a beautiful exposed brick structure. The large wardrobe is covered in Pierre Frey fabric and the bed's headboard features suede and embossed American walnut. The bathroom, in contrast with the rustic nature of the brick, features Grey Carnico marble.
