Campus X Belfiore, the dynamic and hybrid space for students in Turin



A perfect combination of Long Stay and Short Stay, for a new hospitality format: this is CX Turin Belfiore, the new campus for students designed by Rizoma Architetture in the cosmopolitan district of San Salvario, Turin.

Starting from a functional and distributive restyling of the structure, the architects created hybrid and dynamic spaces: for example, the staircase set up as a hybrid between indoor and outdoor, looks like the the entrance of an underground club with metallic and neon-flux shades.

In addition, the acid coloured cage with plants and lights is surrounded by a bench that connects the street with the internal lobby, opened onto a fluid and flexible space, bound to game zone and relax zone, where you can find each other on lounge design seats or at the table tennis table, in addition to workstations to study and to do smart working, a meeting room and a sparkling steel box containing a semi-private space, where you can organise a business meeting, stop for a moment of relaxation or study inside an open-space place.

On the underground floor, the real heart of the structure beats, with a shared kitchen where you can prepare and have your meals, places for entertainment and relaxation, spaces to study with various seats and arrangements, a cinema area and a laundry.

Flexibility is the focus point: during the daytime the eating area can be used as extension of the adjacent study area while the study areas are equipped with study tables for big groups, round tables for 4 people or lounge areas are arranged in different interconnecting spaces, all of them characterised by the presence of 8 cloisters set up with plants and glass windows garnished with decorating vinyls.

There is also a gym, supplied with professional equipment divided in cardio and fitness area of free access for the students of the structure during the day; in addition, the students can enjoy the Lounge cinema, a real game & cinema in which you can take part to theme nights and video projections or in which you can have fun in the breaks during the day.

Eventually, you can’t miss the terrace on the 6th floor, from which you can enjoy a view over the roofs and the domes of Turin and from which you can see the CORN79’s piece of graffiti “Cerebral blue”, not far from CX Belfiore.
