Domus Lascaris


A stone’s throw from the elegant and large Piazza Solferino, Domus Lascaris: the house in which to live today in the heart of Turin. Rationalist palace of the Fifties, between via Lascaris via Francesco d’Assisi and via Dellala. If the design of the three houses was more conservative, at Domus Lascaris, the works on exteriors and interiors will completely revisit the existing one in a redefinition of modernism in a XXI Century key. The start of the Domus Lascaris construction site is scheduled for the beginning of 2019, the delivery of the apartments by 2020; through Building RE, the group’s sales company, 80% of homes are already sold.

<< Domus Lascaris is the new milestone in the work of innovation of living in the center of Turin, which began in 2013 with the inauguration of The Number6. Our goal is to contribute to the process of transforming the city center into a more sustainable, inhabited and life-sized place and a developed and virtuous contemporary society. At the same time, in continuity with our philosophy, even the common spaces of Lascaris will be an opportunity for socializing and meeting, through art, culture and wellness. >> explains Piero Boffa, Founder and President of the Building Group.

The works, on the exterior and in the interior design of Domus Lascaris, will be carried out by Boffa, Petrone & Partners, the design studio of Building, led by the Architect Luca Petrone. The studio, which in recent designs has focused on more conservative interventions, will pay a lot of attention to the environmental impact of the new home, minimum with minimum consumption and housing units in high energy class. The skeleton of the building will remain unchanged, while it will work on the external surface, inserting sunshade windows and mirrors that form a telescope of light inside. The apartments will be 11, with variable cuts between 127 square meters and 247 square meters, with two penthouses with 423 square meters superactics and 531 square meters. Inside the building, the art will dialogue with the new architecture with an art gallery accessible to the public, while the inhabitants will enjoy a large space for wellness with swimming pool, spa, a gym with a fitness area. A lot of attention is also paid to the materials: the design will work with large Carrara marbles, precious essences such as oak, elm, iroko and doussie. Innovation also in home automation, very attentive to energy comfort and functional to manage the lighting scenarios in every single room, even remotely.
