Cascina Torre is an early 20th-century building rising on a hill in a municipal park. The client entrusted the studio to refurbish a two-level portion of the farmstead, 35 square meters per level.
A single space on the ground floor houses the living, dining and kitchen areas. A staircase with a metal frame and slate and glass treads act simultaneously as a vertical connection, kitchen and bookcase. A single suspended Verde Guatemala plane stretches around the perimeter on two sides, housing the sofa, fireplace, and a bench. To climb the stairs, we enter an etched glass unit acting as bookcase and parapet, then emerge in the hallway/walk-in wardrobe. A door concealed in the natural oak cabinets gives access to the green slate tiled bathroom.
