The cozy apartment in Turin by Unduo studio


We are in Turin (Italy), where the spectacular view of the surrounding hills is the main source of inspiration for the apartment redesigned by the architects of Unduo studio, who inverted the living area and the sleeping area to enhance the relationship with landscape.

In the project the living room and kitchen are a single environment conceptually divided by the line of pillars, along which there is also a sofa: the living room is composed of a bookcase, a vintage armchair and a surprising yellow sideboard, and turns its back on the dining area, with a table and four different chairs, and the kitchen, made up of a black island and a wall with a fridge, oven and pantry.

The wall is covered with trowel-smoothed cement and the plants, the custom-made and second-hand furnishings create a warm and original atmosphere, where the predominant cool colours are inspired by the city and the hill while the oak and black porcelain stoneware floors create a cone of light, separated by a strip of brass. 

A diagonal cut of the wall leads to the bedroom and the double bathroom with the shared shower to save space and a frosted glass door to offer privacy and natural light; both spaces are marked by bright colours, such as green and yellow and, around the sink of the largest bathroom, stand out the mediterranean tiles of Made a Mano.

In the bedroom, overlooking the inner courtyard, the wardrobe separates on one side the dressing area and on the other, covered in lively wallpaper, the headboard of the bed; finally, a niche represents a relaxation corner with wooden steps, that are actually containers, covered with cushions. 

A very cozy way to welcome fall.
