An apartment in a building of the early ‘900, located in the Turin hills a few steps from the Gran Madre and from the Piazza Vittorio, has been deeply and carefully restored in 2015 by architect Fabio Fantolino. The international vintage mood is the fil rouge of the project, where elements from the 50s are combined with a conscious recovery of pre-existing structures. The project includes the total renovation of the apartment, the interior design and the design of the lights and custom furniture.

The hotel’s design focuses on zoned programmatic areas which separate and slide away from each other in the event of an earthquake. The areas constructed from a lightweight aluminium frame with pre-cast concrete and recycled plastic polymer panels make it easier to move them away from each other and move through the tremor for easier displacement.

The Monolithic House is an apartment located in Castrovillari (CS), in the southern Italy, so defined because the creative concept behind the project plays with the volumetric subtractions of a monolithic block. The majestic views of the Pollino massif mountains, clearly visible from the luminous windows of the apartment, lead to the choice of the stone as conceptual raw material. In addition to stone, predominant natural material is the wood that warms the environment from the entrance, place where it is immediately enveloped in a surreal atmosphere: a rain of Swarovski crystals adorned the walls, dotted of sparkles. Constructive tension element of interior design around which takes place the open space is the monolithic block, ie the stone wall’s partition between kitchen and living room, characterized by a window which performs the dual function of table or support plane.

The ring out of this valley is not changed, it’s the same silent which someone heard long ago, long before your passing.
Nothing ever happens here. But if you have patience when you stopping, you can understand how the atmosphere you breathe in this place is ancient, it’s chimes in ethereal way. It’s the architecture who is talking about this.
You can see, towards valley, the bell tower and the historic tower and between them the castle walls. The space between them has something pleasantly melancholy.

Ruta 40 is a workspace characterised by a strong home-like feeling. The design meets the need for a space for informal interaction as well as a welcoming place to work. The office was created in a light-filled mansard, previously used as a residential flat. Every space has its own precise function. The living room became a comfortable lounge, the kitchen, which is hidden in the lounge, can host up to two work stations, the bathroom is like a tiny spa, with a bench for relaxing and enjoying the view laid out on the walls, and the two bedrooms were transformed into warm, welcoming offices.

Like being in a life-size anagram. Many products with many different uses and little available space lead to a solution involving an abstract installation echoing different domestic and commercial spaces. Big lighting letters framed by a filtering black fabric mark the division between the spaces.
