No Church Inside is a luxurious loft with a up to date twist situated in Trani, Italy, designed in 2022 by Piertito Cardillo Studio.
The thought stems from the intent to hold out a conservative renovation undertaking to a deconsecrated Jewish church, reworking an previous warehouse right into a prestigious luxurious loft.
The world of about 100 sq. meters is split into two ranges: floor ground and loft. The bottom ground of about 70 sqm has a peak of 8 meters on the highest level and is characterised by a keystone that refers back to the typical masks present in Castel del Monte. To entry the mezzanine ground of about 30 sq. meters, a sculptural spiral staircase in delabrè metal with grunge and refined allure according to the finishes designed for the undertaking was inserted.
A lot of the partitions had been peeled and cleaned by hand, highlighting the tuff and historic stone. The contrasting supplies used are per the historical past of the place and extremely near the traditions of the realm, with a up to date twist. The presence of stone as a constructing and ending materials conditioned the undertaking decisions, inserting the materiality and essentiality of supplies on the heart of the design idea. Having as elementary rules the reuse and safety of the place, all design decisions made had been marked by the respect and enhancement of the historicity of the place.
