Because Ideas Can Be Hot And Cold


Torino, Italy

Aristocratic, refined, historic and modern at the same time - it is the “House on the River” on the banks of the Po in Turin. A complex and ambitious renovation project that aims to maintain the building’s atmosphere and aristocratic charm without altering its style and existing architectural elements. Large and bright areas take the place of dimly lit tight spaces. The typical long corridors of aristocratic houses and the enfilade style of multiple rooms have been reorganised into ample open spaces.

The house is now anchored on three spacious areas; the kitchen, the wardrobe and the living room all overlooked by the other rooms of the house. Fine materials, such as veined cream marble and heat-treated oak parquet, adorn the apartment in an alternating sequence throughout the rooms. The pure minimalist lines of the new renovated rooms are interwoven with antique and sophisticated elements of the original architecture, conveying the fascinating echo of times past.
