The project concerns the construction of a small building in a courtyard in the center of Turin.

Actually this is the restoration of an old laboratory, used in the past as a Carpenter, and external storage.

The theme of recovery of low buildings placed inside courtyards represents an interesting opportunity to rethink the recovery of existing buildings (mostly targeting craft) aimed at the transformation of residential buildings with new spatial characteristics than those of the classic urban apartment.
