Francesco Massarini Architetto as Architects

Football passion can also lead to an eccentric apartment, entirely dedicated to a Turin's team.

The house, situated in the Liberty historical area of Turin, is on the fourth floor of the interesting building of the first years thirty's. In origin was a typical old apartment with different rooms at the main floor, used as lawyer office. The project of transformation of the apartment started by opened of a big living room near the kitchen area. A staircase/cabinet of wood with white front connect the living room with children attic.

A suggestive small part of the house (before it was an ugly small outdoor balcony) was converted in a comfortable luxury depandance for relax and reading, with green fitted carpet. The small bath of the main bedroom is black tiles with white ceiling. A single mirrored column in a middle of the entrance amplify the space, with modern led lighting in the upper side and in the lower side.

The led Lighting system enphatize the stairsteps and its railing built in a simple shape. A single large space characterizes the core of the house on the lower floor (Living room + Kitchen + Dining + Bedroom + Bathrooms + Relax) such first level is connected to the upper level (Children’s Night Attic) by a ladder like stairway/cabinet.

The passion of the clients for the football generates colors: black-white (JUVENTUS uniform) and the green (the field). The allusion to a Turin team is explicit. The derby is in the air since the architect is a TORINO Supporter; the dispute generates a balance of materials and volumes, although colors prevail: white, black and green. The kitchen is visible (black corian top), large green bathroom, small white-black bathroom, relaxation area with green carpet, social fair play area-living with flooring in tiles (existing), existing oak parquet and inlaids in industrial oak parquet (new).
