“The subject of the recovery of low buildings positioned inside courtyards certainly represents an interesting opportunity to rethink the recovery of existing buildings (mostly with artisan destination), aimed at the processing of the same in new residential buildings with spatial characteristics compared to those of the classic urban apartment. In this specific case, the intervention concerned, not only to recover the residential purposes of old carpentry, but also the realization of a small workshop and two parking spaces in place of the existing external storage. The main building consists essentially of two volumes: a first volume covered in black metal and slats in okumè wood; a second volume, resting on the first, and completely covered with titanium zinc. A girder continuous completely black iron frames the first volume, extending even to demarcate the volume of the lab and placed parking perpendicular to the first. A slender iron pergola covers the terrace resuming scanning of the underlying structure.”

The renovation of this 80-sqm-apartment located on the last floor of a traditional early 1900 English villa has used a very linear design as a frame for an eclectic mix of modern, ancient and ethnic details.
The designers found a space that had been strongly transformed during the last renovation made in the 80’s. Revisiting the stylistic choices made in order to lighten and de-materialize the existing structure, they tried to create back a dialogue with the traditional architecture.

This apartment is located in the center of Turin in a historical building and was completely renovated in 2015-2016. It is born for a client who usually lives in Switzerland, but that had a desire to accomplish in this city his “good retreat”. We tried to capture the desires, expectations and personality of the client, in order to create for him a bespoke apartment where he could feel at home and perfectly comfortable. The result has been fully achieved, and the house is a mix of architecture and pieces of the life of this man of many many experiences around the world.

Despite its small dimension, the cabin includes a series of functions which determine its formal solutions.
It’s a shed, where the firewood required by the client’s house heating system is stored. The air passing through the planks of the building’s shell ensures the collected wood to dry.
It’s a shelter, a refuge, a place that provides interaction between the private but open courtyard and the outside public space. A center of gravity around which the life of the clients and the inhabitants of the small hamlet takes place: the niche on the south facade is a special seat for humans an animals.

They have asked us to rethink the entrance to the house. The direct access to the dining area was preventing the sensation of surprise that every home should have.
A big sliding panel put in front of you, after having passed the entrance staircase, serves a dual purpose: to arouse your curiosity and to oblige your choice of itinerary, that is, walking up the stairs to the bedrooms or entering the living area. A compact space has been created in order to reveal in advance the expanded and bright living area of the house.

The Moscova house is a volume with rectangular plan, placed on the fifth and top floor of a nineteenth century building, situated in a street corridor connecting the ‘garden’ of the city of Milan, the Sempione Park, to “Chinatown”, whose pronunciation perfectly alludes today to that cosmopolitan quality of big and small cities. The longitudinal development of the plan measures 5×20 m: the elongated west side adjoins to a symmetrical apartment, presenting thus no openings, while towards east wide roof openings offer a broad view onto the skyline of Porta Garibaldi. The structure is of masonry and the thick partition walls of pressed bricks of which it consists divide the space in four communicating areas, connected towards west by a series of aligned openings that offer a full visual lengthwise from one end to the other. On top of the one sided pitched wooden roof, a row of skylights delivers a significant amount of light towards the ‘blind’ side of the house.
