The potentialities of an industrial space

Buscalioni is a former marble manufacturing laboratory, overlooking the green spaces of the ancient excise belt of Turin. Behind the facade characterised by the window decorations, the early 20th century structure includes a wide and flexible space. The hall that featured the processing alternates raw concrete, the red of the old bricks and the light from the industrial windows. From here you can perceive, supported by the cotto pillars, the roofing, from which the view to the surrounding green does not encounter obstacles.

Beyond the main gate, there is a courtyard at the centre of which a great tree gives shelter from the southern sun. All around, green and low buildings complete the landscape of a neighbourhood that is becoming the centre of creative activities and innovative experiences.

An innovative and shared building

Buscalioni is a life space where common spaces, efficient technologies and moderate costs are shared.

Six flats with different surface areas are organised around a hall for parties, a bread oven and a wellness room, whereas on the outside, pergolas and awnings allow to use the courtyard in every season.

The industrial character of the building lives on in the new materials: steel, bricks, timber and plasters make the jacket efficient in terms of costs and energy.

“This cohousing experience is the attempt to redefine the concept of everyday well-being”

SIMONE – HOMERS / Buscalioni

A guided and participated course

Buscalioni is a shared project. The Homers are a community that imagines the common spaces together and chooses the character of the building it dreams.

Everyone is assisted by professionals in all aspects of the building of their home.

“I like the idea of not living in a place that is very private and does not open to the outside, but that actually has common spaces where common things are done.”
