The project of The Student Hotel Turin is located in an abandoned area with an incredible urban value for its location facing toward south on the Dora River while on the west on Corso Giulio Cesare that is the main penetration axis through the urban fabric from Milan to the city centre of Turin. The aim for the city is to create a new gate for Turin in a prominent location and with an iconic settlement.
While sketching and reading the urban texture of the surrounding on a bigger scale we thought that providing a generous public green space connecting the Lungo Dora with Corso Brescia along Via Aosta.
Inspired by its waterside location, the new development aims to create both a destination and a new corridor linking the city and the river bringing together people and place to create a unique and diverse location in the centre of the city.
A place for working, studying and living enhanced with cultural, leisure and sport activities.
