Nestled in a courtyard in the center of Turin, this now elegant apartment was originally used as an auto repair shop...

Loft M50 is the result of a renovation and redevelopment project envisioned by architect Paola Mare. The floors in the living room and kitchen are tiled with the Beton porcelain stoneware collection in the light Pearl color and sizes of 75.5x75.5 cm and 75.5x151 cm, while the dark color was chosen for the bathroom, in the size of 75.5x151 cm, making a total of 146 square meters.

On the ground floor, there is a large open area comprising the living room, dining area, separated by a masonry partition wall, the master bathroom, a study separated from the rest of the home by a sliding panel made of wooden boards, and an outdoor space. Above this floor are the mezzanines, a typical feature of loft apartments. The entire living space is characterized by the contrast between the white floors and walls, black iron and decorative elements, and the warm allure of birch wood furnishings.

To create a larger, more regular space and utilize the height of the building, the renovation project involved removing the wall dividing the two long, narrow parts of the industrial construction, as well as constructing three metal carpentry mezzanines. One of the mezzanines houses the bedroom, with a jacuzzi and a small bathroom; another is a lounge area, while the third is used as a guest area. Below the larger mezzanines is the entrance to the apartment, adorned with wallpapers, as well as the walk-in wardrobe, main bathroom, and the study, which has its entrance.

To add dynamism to the entire space, the stairs to the mezzanines are designed in different shapes and colors. Additionally, the lighting has been carefully designed to create a distinctive atmosphere for each area and their different functions.

Finally, a part of the roof has been removed and closed off on two sides with large sliding door frames to create a private outdoor area, make the whole home brighter, and allow for a smooth transition between indoors and outdoors.


Concrete-effect porcelain stoneware is one of the main trends for enthusiasts of metropolitan or urban chic style. This innovative ceramic material takes concrete and gives it a soft, stylized, cloudy look with an appealing color effect. This provides a striking response to the evolving demands of contemporary lifestyles and is the ideal choice for shaping enchanting, sophisticated living spaces with plenty of character.

The Beton porcelain stoneware collection by Casalgrande Padana features neutral tones and soft spatula effects, making it a perfect complement for various styles: from the metropolitan style typical of loft apartments to a modern, contemporary Nordic look. Beton comes in a natural surface and is available in five shades (Dark, Ivory, Mud, Pearl, and Sand) and five sizes (30x60 cm, 60x60 cm, 37.5x75.5 cm, 75.5x75.5 cm, and 75.5x151 cm).
