The Number 6 Building, Via Alfieri, Turin, Italy

Turin, 23 February 2023 – A new model of home living, which adapts to the lifestyle of the modern family and also transforms the ap-pearance of the most beautiful house in the world, in Via Alfieri in Turin. The Number 6 – the famous Baroque building that already in 2015, after the intervention of the Building Group, was awarded as Building of the Year by ArchDaily – presents the restyling of its penthouse, completely renovated in terms of its shape and development of spaces.

About 10 years after the last intervention, the apartment on the top floor of the prestigious Palazzo Valperga Galleani has undergone a new design and setup that aims to enhance the common spaces and domestic sociality, with an unprecedented combination of environments that change in their function. In fact, after the pandemic, the need has grown for families to have even more space available for seclusion and privacy, where they can carry out the increasingly recurring home working, training and studying in a comfortable and productive way.

The renovation project, by the Boffa Petrone & Partners studio, has kept the volume of the interior space and terraces unchanged, rethinking some areas in a more functional way and adapted to the changed housing needs. The modernisation interventions saw the participation of BI.CI. who, for months, took care of the planning and interior design, fully expressing the concept of the contemporary home, enhancing every envi-ronment. Giorgia Mirabella for the artistic direction and the search for the most valuable pieces and Galleria Mazzoleni for the supply of works of art that enrich the spaces.

The house is now spread over a vast living area, with spaces dedicated to relaxation and the kitchen area, adjacent to three bedrooms and five panoramic terraces equipped with hanging gardens. The furnishings have been completely replaced with new design elements, able to give a touch of elegance and modernity to the entire apartment. In particular, the rooms have been designed to be as bright and airy as possible, with the use of natural tones and materials that help create a welcoming and refined atmosphere.

“In this renovation project, we wanted to focus attention on how the needs of a modern family have changed and how the distribution of domestic spaces can influence and sometimes even improve the relationships between the people who live there – said Luca Boffa, CEO of the Building Group. After ten years, it was necessary to reorganise the house to adapt it to the contemporary lifestyle, creating comfortable and functional en-vironments.”
