In the heart of Cuneo, Italy, where the past breathes through the cobblestone streets and baroque architecture, the historical Palazzo Rubatti di Torricella unveils its latest transformation. Barbara Vucusa, renowned for blending historical reverence with modern comfort, has reinvented an apartment within this 17th-century palace. Aptly named Erika, this redesign in 2021 invites residents to step back in time while enjoying contemporary luxuries.
Through thoughtful restoration, the apartment’s noble floor reveals its original grandeur, from rediscovered 18th-century frescoes to custom-designed furniture that bridges the essence of aristocracy with the ease of modern living.
Welcome to Luzzatti Home – a modern industrial house located in Cuneo, Italy, designed by Balance Architettura in 2021.
This house is a part of the Italian typology called “dei Ferrovieri” from 1921 and it is preserved and bound property by the Committee of Architectural Heritage. The main focus was on maintaining the internal spirit of the time, preserving the authentic wooden beams and the un-finished finishings to maintain the historic memory of the house. The dark coloring, sheet metal staircase and birch furniture and outfitting merge with the rest of the building and create an authentic and hospitable feel.
