Casa MRGT: A modern industrial loft in the heart of Turin
by J. Parker
In the heart of Turin's Barriera di Milano rises Casa MRGT, a stunning loft spanning four floors in an industrial building. Designed by lamatilde for a Canadian-born automotive designer, this 350 square meter loft is a fusion of urban minimalism and industrial aesthetics, complemented by a 250 square meter roof terrace.
Unique room concept
Casa MRGT is characterized by an open spatial concept in which geometric volumes define the different areas. Dark metal accents contrast with the wide, light-flooded surfaces and create a play of light and shadow.
Innovative use of space
Inside are stacked metal structures, including a home theater made from blackened carbon steel sheeting and a cozy guest room wrapped in micro-perforated sheet metal.
A garage as a gallery
The ground floor serves as a garage and at the same time a gallery for the owner's classic car collection. With vibrant yellow accents and exposed structural elements, the space becomes an eclectic backdrop.
Living and design combined
The second floor features an open living area, including a kitchen island designed by lamatilde. A mix of modern and classic elements, including Charles sofas from B&B Italia and Wassily armchairs from Knoll, characterize the ambience. A large Tavolo 25 table by Desalto surrounded by Calligaris chairs and lit by an Algorithm chandelier by Vibia completes the dining area.
Privacy and design
The third floor houses the master bedroom, centrally arranged around a walk-in closet. An open space with a walk-in shower and free-standing bathtub, complemented by design classics such as the LC4 lounger from Cassina. A wooden slat structure offers individual lighting design and privacy.
Roof terrace as a highlight
The top floor crowns the loft with a roof terrace that offers breathtaking panoramic views of the city. A pergola, outdoor kitchen, seating, sauna and swimming pool, surrounded by lush greenery and small fruit trees, make this area an absolute highlight.
Casa MRGT is a homage to modern design that perfectly combines industrial with residential, and thus represents a milestone in contemporary architecture.
