25 Green in Turin, Italy by Luciano Pia

Article source: Luciano Pia

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.

3 VAULTS in Turin, Italy by R3Architetti

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Article source: R3Architetti

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.

Caboto26 in Turin, Italy by raimondo guidacci architetto

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Article source: raimondo guidacci architetto

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.

Article source: Foster + Partners

Uniting the faculties of Law and Political Science within a single, modern campus for 5,000 students, the project has created flexible new facilities for Turin University, as well as establishing new connections between the institution and wider community. The design links the former Italgas site on the southern bank of the River Dora with the neighbourhood of Borgo Rossini, regenerating a formerly industrial quarter close to the historic heart of the city, and turning the former source of Turin’s energy into an educational powerhouse to drive future prosperity.

Funeral Chapel in Turin, Italy by Raimondo Guidacci

Article source: Raimondo Guidacci

Planning a funeral chapel means designing a building with a strong symbolic value means dealing not only with the place where it will be placed, but especially with spiritual values. Planning a funeral chapel, is how to design a small monument, a small church. In the design of the chapel to St. George Canavese, all this adds another element represented by the fact that it was to renovate a chapel trying to preserve the existing profile.

The Field in Turin, Italy by Atelier 37.2

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Article source: Atelier 37.2

This field was set on a pedestrian square, in front of a church, in the city centre of Torino for the Architettura in citta Festival. This installation is composed of eleven “proteiforme” wooden sculptures partly filled with soil. Although each sculpture seems to share the same DNA, they are all unique.
