During University I started appreciating the beauty and class of the city of Tourin, though this, I could hardly live in a city: the “slow” lifestyle of country life is part of me. Actually, looking at this flat with its amazing dehors I could also change my mind. This fascinating Loft, with a panoramic balcony on the city of Tourin  and an impressive pool, is a work by Architect Fabio Fantolino.

The exterior elements of the Loft don’t need much more explanations and the interior as well. The living area has glass walls everywhere and is divided into three parts: the sofa area and the dining area lie on the same level, while the television area is 30 cm higher thanks to a wood platform. The bookcase close in this corner is covered by some big cushions that turn it into another confortable sofa where you can read the books under you or watch quietly tv.

The concept of the project is that of a Loft that can be turned into a standard apartment. The walnut sliding doors can indeed divide and define different rooms when closed while open thay contribute in creating a big open space with no barriers.

Some inspirations from this project:  well, the roof-pool is nearly impossible, there are anyway many good ideas like the wood-floored balcony, the raised reading corner, the sliding doors, the recessed tub in the bathroom.
