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.

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.

Positions and functions of the apartment are the same, what changed is its surface.
The phase that concerns the terrace is totally revolutionary instead. It is considered as a natural extension of the inner house and converted as the relax area. There are two different themes: one space for free time with friends, around a table or on a couch under the stars; one cozy space, with sauna and Jacuzzi. The filter between the two parts is underlined with a stellar set, in fact the CORTEN that covers storage, sauna and flower boxes is dotted to draw the zodiac and then lighten up from the inside.

“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.”

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.

The measure in question provided for the restructuring and change of use of an industrial building destination located at the center of a quadrilateral of residential buildings. The shed in which we intervened, was placed exactly in the middle of a block of the west area of Turin, near the border with the town of Grugliasco (block between Via De Santis, Pronda road, via Cimone and via Postumia). This is a city area developed after the Second World War, and still partially in the developing; in fact, some of the block buildings have recently been constructued. The intervention involved the reshaping of the existing building in order to make it habitable. Its location is ideal, since being on the block center of gravity has a right distance from the buildings to have no annoying visual interference; moreover the intervention took place in accordance with the neighbor (the road Pronda 8), which was planning to demolish the existing buildings low to build a new building on front street, leaving the right of way (existing) to enter the lot in object. The existing building has been, so, surrounded by green gardens, partly to other condos in part derived uncovering part of the building itself. The GFA, originally located on the ground floor of the building, was distributed between the new mezzanine and the remaining ground floor. The height of the cover is not changed, the outer walls were maintained in part as boundary walls in part as the walls of the new residence. The most difficult part of the design was to give the proportions of residential building to a building that was built to house production activities. The main elevations are divided by dormers and recesses that mark the number of homes fitted inside. Moreover, the tall, narrow windows (partially obscured by fixed shading) try to give new proportions to the main prospect. The inputs to housing are designed as common compasses. All shutters and entrances are made of silver-colored metal profiles, the shell is finished with “ISOCOPPO” Alubel light gray, and the facades are painted in colored earthenware (red mattonaceo).

A new house has put down its roots in Turin. Its structure is in steel and it looks like a forest where trees are rooted in terraces with irregular shapes, ponds are crossed by footings and lush gardens cover the roofs. The building has been thought as a living forest, a house on the trees like the houses children dream of and sometimes build.

We have been asked to reconfigure the interior of a three-room apartment of about sixty square meters in Turin to accommodate a new type of home who could also function as Airbnb. The new plan layout emphasizes the three vaults that crown the entire volume of the house: two of them frame the living area and one the bedroom and bathroom area. By cutting the septum that divided the two northern vaults, the living area takes a diagonal orientation that expands the perception of space. This axis scheme is further emphasized by the geometry of the sofa and by the wooden niche that outlines the study area and gives access to the bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen, made with reinforced concrete cast on site and oak doors, divides the dining room from an extra area used as utility and store room. The dialogue between different materials defines the dining area: concrete and wood for the kitchen, exposed concrete for the walls, zinc-coated steel pipes and wooden top for the table. The studio niche leads to the space held within the third vault where the bedroom and the bathroom are: this area is divided by a septum which maintains the space continuum at the ceiling level. On this third vault the original 1905 decoration has been brought back to the surface.
