Ravera Furniture showroom

Refurbishment of a historical building in Caravino

The building is sited in the historical center of Caravino, a small town north of Torino. The original building offered a potential that was reinterpreted through the project and revisited in a contemporary way. The brick and stone façade overlooking the street was maintained and intersected with a contemporary volume on the interior side, while on the other main façade the extruded frames around the openings were replicated and became a distinctive element throughout. The existing body is marked with a copper line and extended through a clean volume that occupies the length of the plot through an L-shaped plan. Similarly, the original wooden screen that served the purpose of ventilating the rooms where corn was exsiccated, has been reinterpreted through a system of wooden screenings protecting the interior from south-west sunlight. The ground floor opens onto the courtyard and the street, as serves as the main connection with the rest of the building that houses a showroom for a high-end furniture shop.
