Via della Rocca

Building renovation project for the unification of two real estate units distributed on two different levels

Signs, color and light are the elements with which the space is built in this interior in Turin.
The sign constitutes the identity of the place and the color defines the sign.
The color is repeated as an echo that is transmitted and rebounds from the walls to the elements of furniture, thus helping to define the place.
The blue and yellow contrast, touch each other, in a continuous call.
Space is experienced as a path on which the places overlook: color accompanies movement, the sign identifies space.
The perimeter walls are deliberately white because the white represents the maximum brightness with which to bring out the signs.
The external openings dialogue with what is outside and allow the light to enter.
The light participates in the composition, enters from the external openings enhances the white and is reflected on the color, the saturated.
At the same time the color vibrates and reflects the light, the sign becomes plastic and emerges almost by living its own life.
The relationship with the outside defines the choice of color tones: the blue captures the nuances of the sky, the yellow and the orange relate to the light and the sun that illuminates and warms.

  • Ida Bonfiglio

    Ida Bonfiglio graduated in 1993 in Architecture at the Milan Polytechnic. She began her professional activity in Milan in the architectural firm Ravegnani Morosini where she mainly deals with hospital architecture, deepening the relationship with the spaces of the city and the landscape. From 1994 to 1999 she collaborated in teaching at the Milan Polytechnic within the courses of Architectural Composition and Architectural Design held by prof. Roberto Ravegnani Morosini. In 1999 she began a personal journey that led her to take care of architectural and interior design through renovation and expansion of civil buildings and homes. From 1999 to 2005, the collaboration with the Fatebenefratelli Hospital of Milan allows her to take care of planning in the health sector, deepening the issues related to accessibility and the relationship between public space and users. At the beginning of 2000 she moved to Turin where her professional activity is based. In 2002 she participated in the National Course of Bio-architecture and deepened the relationship light_color_matter increasingly central in her design. The projects are developed facing the different scales, from the building and its context of reference inside, to the design of the furnishing elements, in a path in which themes, places, typologies, users, companies, materials and workmanship intertwine and dialogue. The design activity in the studio has always been flanked by the activities in the yard and in the laboratory with the artisans, as the translation of the design into reality is seen as an important moment for verifying and deepening the project. The architect is active in the area through collaborations with local forums, associations and schools. The architect participates in the activity of OAT - Order Conservative Landscape Architects of the Province of Turin - as a member of the Focus Group Competitions and Quality of the Project.
