COMOGLIO ARCHITETTI designed the ‘House MA:CO’ in Turin, Italy.
Description from the architects:
The project is the renovation and the interior design of the apartment on the third floor in a house located in Turin. This is the synthesis of a short path of research developed in these years on the construction of white and minimal space.
Main theme is the relationship between white and black, gloss and opacity.
The large living room includes the kitchen as a choice for any act of communion “the cook” which becomes the main scene in the daily life of the area daily.
The large glass windows filter the light that is reflected on the white walls and the furnishings multiplying his strength and contrasting dark wengé floor.
The lowering of the ceiling through new veils connote the different areas of living room (the entrance, kitchen, dining room, the recreation area) and characterize the different types of artificial lighting. The furnishings of the entire apartment has been designed and built with local craftsman involved in the research and experimentation, an example is the opening mechanism controlled by the kitchen wall, which becomes a game show at the same time.
