Inside Casa CTV 2: Where Past Meets Present

IDAA architetti’s vision unfolds room by room with effortless synchrony. The living space features a minimalist kitchen with a stark black countertop, offset by the warm glow of the brickwork. A muted gray sofa accessorized with vibrant yellow cushions offers a pop of color, and industrial materials like iron and glass make subtle appearances throughout, reminding visitors of the apartment’s modern twist.

Transitioning to the dining area, understated elegance prevails. Simple black chairs circle a matching table, flanked by windows that allow light to dance across the medieval ceiling. The effect is serene, suitable for reflective mornings or social evenings.

The designers’ thoughtful use of space shines in a cozy nook, where the sofa invites guests to gaze through the doorway towards the cityscape—or retreat into the apartment’s embrace.

Spectacular Views and Intimate Spaces

An ingenious blend of rustic charm and edgy aesthetics defines the bedroom space. Under sloping ceilings, the room features a contemporary bed opposite a free-standing bathtub, creating a luxurious enclave for relaxation.

In the ensuite, modern fixtures stand alongside an elegantly curved window, framing breathtaking views of the city. Here, the contrast of historical architecture and modern living culminates most beautifully.

The apartment’s allure extends outside, where a balcony view showcases Via Garibaldi. Residents can savour an unmatched panorama of Turin’s antique beauty, making Casa CTV 2 not just a living space, but a sensory experience.

In every corner of Casa CTV 2, IDAA architetti has crafted an environment where every element conspires to tell a cohesive story—one of history’s texture and today’s refinement intertwined.
