MONTALTO DORA (TORINO) – 1965
This two-story house, plus basement, was for the Dean of a technical school.
Due to the limited size of the land and our decision to provide sunlight to all Bedrooms, the second floor were rotated by 45 degrees on axis, creating four triangular balconies.
These balconies are covered by four HP wooden structures that overhang from the roof.
In the entrance there is an octagonal staircase that leads to a living room, a dining room and kitchen on the first floor.
The ground floor consists of a two-car garage, a tavern and a maid’s quarter.
Decorative lighting hangs from the upper floor ceiling into the center of the staircase.
Since 1965 when the house was completed it sold three times after the original owners passed away.
