Situated in Turin, Italy, Basilica (2011) by Fabio Fantolino. Numerous details of the apartment give a vintage look to the environment; where the original floor is in fair condition is in fact preserved and restored, and flanked by new insertions in resin concrete, contributes to give a retro flavor. The walls in plasterboard and white bricks complete the contrasts between ancient and new. Boiserie and furnishings in scarred oak and burnished sheet metal, create a three-dimensional effect, with warm contrasts in the brushing of wood and cold in black iron.
The sleeping area has a bed reminiscent of canopies, geometrically recreated with black iron shapes, which has a mid-hanging wardrobe in the background, which reconnects the bedroom area to the rear walk-in closet. Wardrobes are always treated as full volumes that do not see continuity between rooms, but rather want to lead from one room to another, giving union to environments.
