Residential transformation in Turin. Architecture and design come together in an innovative apartment

City / State: Turin / Italy

In the heart of Turin, the story of Davide and Giorgia comes to life through the transformation of their home, purchased in 2019, into a perfectly optimized and aesthetically surprising living space. Their desire to maximize the available area, create a cozy atmosphere, combined with their attention to detail has led to a significant renovation, transforming an ordinary house into a contemporary sanctuary

 

Despite the structural restrictions that limited the changes in the living area, having a fixed square footage and a difference in height, the designer was able to make the most of the available spaces. Through the optimization of the spaces and the addition of a second bathroom complete with shower, every inch has been exploited to the maximum, creating a minimalist and functional apartment where the rooms follow each other in a harmonious dialogue

 

Customization was at the heart of the design process. Through the sharing of images and preferences, a tailor-made project was created that fully reflected the wishes of the owners. The result is an apartment dominated by light shades and refined details, where oak parquet and iron finishes create an elegant contrast

 

The floor is parquet with an oak finish. White is the dominant color, while the details resemble the wood of the flooring. The dark color of the walls match the iron, a material chosen for some of the details and a midnight blue was chosen for the chairs and upholstery

 

The constructor had proposed a straight staircase that, from the entrance, led to the living area. The project provided a different solution that could create dialogue with the environment. The staircase is transformed into a functional design element, so the TV cabinet becomes a real focal point of the living area, open to the staircase and monolithic to the large window: the white finish, contrasting with the dark gray, conceals its true dimensions. In this space each choice has been designed to create a cozy, fluid and harmonious ambiance

 

The shelves arranged in the wall opposite the TV play an important role in the overall design of the room. Suspended frames, using the tones of wood and black, stand out on the white wall that accompanies the kitchen

 

Although the open space is not large, every detail becomes the protagonist: the central island is a single block with the table, being the most ambitious challenge of the whole project. In the kitchen area, the architect has overcome the limitations of space, transforming the dream of an island kitchen into a tangible reality. Through innovative solutions and a careful study of the arrangement of the elements, the island becomes the beating heart of the environment, inviting conviviality and socialization

 

The living area is exposed to the east, thanks to the large window which extends the entire width of the open space and enjoys a lot of natural light. In the lighting aspect of the project, the architect wanted to recreate the most natural lighting possible, daylight. Thanks to the use of ceiling spotlights with a guide line, creating a false ceiling and losing the 4 meters of height of the room was avoided


For the staircase a 60×120 cm ceramic tile with a concrete coating effect was used. The second wooden step stands out, an extension of the TV cabinet, highlighting the link between the living area and the raised sleeping area on the second level. Here we find the two bedrooms and bathrooms, whose original sizes were renovated to include showers of 130×80 cm. The redesign was able to give more space to the rooms

 

The attention to detail also extends to the bathrooms, where the skilful use of iron and wood creates a refined and modern style. The bathroom cabinet, made to measure by a carpenter, recalls the dark color of iron in the living area, while the top is made of wood in a light oak treated to resist water and moisture. The use of horizontal radiators finishes the furniture of the bathroom without hiding the functionality. The niche, thanks to a mirror effect, creates movement, while the black fixtures, such as that of the shower, mark the space. In the master bathroom the use of wallpaper has created depth, expanded by the huge mirror height, where the background color is gray. In the master bedroom the concept of fluid spaces returns: the wall of the headboard hides the walk-in closet which is accessible from both sides: a curtain hides from view its contents

 

Ultimately, this renovation testifies to the importance of careful and personalized design in the creation of living spaces that fully reflect the wishes and needs of the owners. From the custom-made bathroom cabinet to the wallpaper that gives depth to the master suite, every choice has been guided by the search for aesthetic and functional perfection

 

Talking About KK Architecture

Maurizio POL Graduated with honors in Turin at the Polytechnic of Turin in the faculty of architecture in architectural design, architectural composition, technology and sustainability. He works in various studios including Aedas Visconti where he had the opportunity to participate in several international competitions and large-scale projects. In 2012 he formed kkarchitecture an entity where private jobs are based on advice from professionals. kkarchitecture was created with the aim of reducing the distance between the figure of the architect and those who need an opinion for their home or business, but are afraid that contacting a professional implies expenses and time difficult to quantify.

The studio takes a step by step approach to architectural design, general renovations and interior design. Step by step the path with the architect is defined, articulated and dissected to accompany the customer in an experience that is as pleasant and stress-free as possible. We have different solutions to accompany you in every phase of the design, from the first contact, through the advancement of the project details until the renovation is complete.

Clear services, reliable costs, reliable working times and above all an innovative and tailor-made product
