The 60sqm apartment has been obtain restoring an ex stable of a ‘700 chalet in the heart of a small village called Pragelato in the Turin’s Alps in North Italy. The vary suggestive atmosphere is created by the double stone vaulted ceiling. The project intention was to do not touch the shell, but to leave the eye to be able to read the space all around.
The goal was to be able to obtain a relation from the existing space and the necessity of a four people family for their own second house, trying to make clear the insertion of new functions in a space that once was designated for other used.
The vaulted has been totally restored and the floor has been realized by a light chalky stone tile. In the middle of the room, a big volume has got on the inside all the necessary service that a house needs: bathroom, kitchen, cupboard, a small laundry and a wardrobe. This appear as if the volume was put inside a room that never touch. His presence organized the surrounded space, and makes a separate area from the living room and the two bedrooms.Location: Pragelato, Turin, Italy Architect: Studioata
