Resin and oak


Resin and oak

Internal restructuring of an apartment on two floors in a former industrial building, with definition of the spaces and finishings.

In a former factory on the Dora in Turin, a young couple entrusts us with the project of a loft on two levels: we start from spaces in the rough with no internal partitions.

The project is defined with the living area on the access floor and the sleeping area on the lower floor.
The living area spaces have been redesigned with a retractable wardrobe that visually delimits the kitchen and divides the entrance, while maintaining a smooth, easy use of the rooms.
The sleeping area has been subdivided to create a bedroom with walk-in closet, a kids room and a bathroom.

Designing houses on multiple levels often becomes a work on connections, on links, on creating a coherent and non-static path from the entrance to the most intimate spaces.

In the AG house, the common thread was the choice of materials, gray resin, natural wood and white walls, which alternate under different perspectives to delineate a single tale.
The remaining job is done by the light, coming in from the large factory windows, intense and strong in all the interiors.

  • Qbo Architetti Associati

    Qbo Architetti Associati was founded in 2007 on the initiative of six young architects trained at the Turin Polytechnical university. It is a group of professionals who collaborate with no hierarchies and generate value for themselves and their clients through the realization of shared projects. Those arise from the union of the skills, specializations, attitudes and personal charisms of the individual professionals and reflect the continuous choral research for always new solutions and paths. The different specializations of the working group, ranging from bio-architecture, lighting, acoustics, industrial design and accessible architecture, allow in fact to manage the project path in a multidisciplinary manner. Qbo's projects are comfortable, sustainable and durable for living spaces tailored to dreams and needs. The studio has particular experience in residential and office spaces. Through training experiences abroad of the partners, the studio has gained technical and professional knowledge of languages such as Spanish, English, German, French and Portuguese. The studio operates in the territory of the Turin area and in the Cuneo area of Alba.
