Hospice Villa Sclopis in Torino, Italy by architetto Michele De Lucchi S.r.l.

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

Article source: architetto Michele De Lucchi S.r.l.

The eighteenth century villa owned by the Sclopis family, in Salerano Canavese, was used after World War 2 as an orphange, and later as a higher educational institute. The brief was to convert the complex into an assisted residence for terminal cancer and Alzheimer patients. The project restored the family villa and substituted the adjacent reinforced concrete volume with a new, steel-framed structure to accommodate a hospice. Internal floor heights were adapted to those of the older building, so as to eliminate differences of level and facilitate horizontal circulation. A centrally located stretcher-bearing lift integrates the vertical communications to provide quick service to all rooms. The complex was equipped with new heating, plumbing and electrical systems and medical gas supplies. The service units were re-allocated to the ground floor, the communal areas to the first, and the guest rooms to the upper levels. Wooden brise-soleils screen the glazed fronts of the hospice to soften light entering the rooms and to mitigate the impact of the new construction on the surrounding period architecture. The brise-soleil system is extended to the copper cladding of a neighbouring pavilion, internally reorganised to house the Alzheimer patients’ day centre.

The via Domodossola 25 condominium is located on a small urban lot, between two existing buildings. The city in which is placed the project, is a semi-suburban area that was mainly developed in the period between the two world wars; the buildings that characterize most of this part of city are mostly in the “novecento” style or Art Nouveau style (the Santorre school Santarosa, the faculty of physical education, the neighborhood between Racconigi road and Peschiera road).

CASA Y in Torino, Italy by F:L architetti

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

Article source: F:L architetti

Set on the hills just outside the city of Turin, CASA Y is a family house designed for a professional couple with 3 children. Clients’ needs were very large spaces devoted to family life and a low-impact energy and house.

Tucked into the hillside, this discreet volume consists in the juxtaposition of two simple parallelepipeds, one in fair-faced concrete and the other in glass covered with cor-ten steel. Concrete and cor-ten are a stylistic choice and a functional one, the answer to the client’s need of ease of maintenance and long-term durability.
