Two-level apartment in Turin with an open and inviting new interior

Usually, after a renovation, an apartment, house, office or any other type of space has a fresh new decor and that décor is more open, making that space seem somehow larger. This can be clearly seen in the case of this particular apartment.

Located in Turin, Italy, this apartment has been redesigned by Studioata. It can be found in a beautiful turn-of-the-century building and it’s known as Departamento CUBO. After the renovation, the apartment became larger and it’s not just an impression created by the décor or colors. Two levels were combined and they created this single space.

The apartment has lots of character and, even though it’s very open and spacious, it’s also cozy and welcoming. That’s mostly due to the materials used in the renovation as well as to the colors included in the décor. Lots of wood features can be seen here. They make the apartment feel warm and inviting. Also, the different tones of wood create interesting but subtle contrast and this allows the décor to also feel dynamic as opposed to monochrome and monotonous.

The space is functionally divided into several areas. The apartment includes a kitchen and dining area, a living room with double-height ceilings and a sleeping area. A volume with a square base was inserted into the apartment as part of the renovation. It’s basically a cube covered with MDF. Similar features can also be seen in all the other spaces, making the apartment look cohesive and balanced. This cube separates the space in the apartment without dividing it.
