Chalet della madonnina is a project designed by Officina 8a. Different declinations of alpine architecture characterize the city centre: the result is heterogeneous but in harmony. Photography by Sabrina Gazzola.
GREEN BBQ is a project designed by Officina 8a and is located in Turin, Italy. Two units, one owner. Two close units, but divided. The division is green. So green is the theme of the union: more trees, such as pomegranate, cork and olive, animate new paths. The walk-away is marked with Luserna stone, the retaining walls are covered with CORTEN. The paths lead from the main villa to the dependance. The hearth is the barbecue, covered with a metallic roof and equipped of a Argentinean parilla, actually the rousing motivation of the whole project. Photo by Sabrina Gazzola.
Super G&G is a project designed by Officina 8a, the main character of the project is the vertical connection between the levels of the apartment. The staircase divides spaces vertically (bedrooms under, living area above) and horizontally (bedrooms and utilities at the ninth floor, kitchen and living room at the tenth floor). The materials chosen for the stair (metal, wood, glass) let the whole apartment have strength and transparency. Glass especially lets the natural light arrive until the lower floor. The living area in the attic is a continuous and wide space thanks to large glassy door on the terrace. Photo by Sabrina Gazzola
