Skin renovation

Social housing

The site for the project in Turin, is an abandoned building that used to be once a textile factory. The design was developed by respecting the surroundings and by creating an enclosed internal courtyard. The users of this co-housing project are divided in families occupying a series of private units, customised on each family needs and a series of public areas and an open garden (approximately 50% of the plot area). The skin system works not only as shading panels, but also provides the privacy of the terraces and a pleasant atmosphere.
